Accepted name: deoxyribokinase
Reaction: ATP + 2-deoxy-D-ribose = ADP + 2-deoxy-D-ribose 5-phosphate
Other name(s): deoK (gene name)
Systematic name: ATP:2-deoxy-D-ribose 5-phosphotransferase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from bacteria, is much more active with 2-deoxy-D-ribose than with D-ribose. cf. EC, ribokinase.
