Accepted name: 2-dehydro-3-deoxygluconokinase
Reaction: ATP + 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-D-gluconate = ADP + 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-6-phospho-D-gluconate
Other name(s): 2-keto-3-deoxygluconokinase; 2-keto-3-deoxy-D-gluconic acid kinase; 2-keto-3-deoxygluconokinase (phosphorylating); 2-keto-3-deoxygluconate kinase; ketodeoxygluconokinase
Systematic name: ATP:2-dehydro-3-deoxy-D-gluconate 6-phosphotransferase
Comments: The enzyme shows no activity with 2-dehydro-3-deoxy-D-galactonate [1]. cf. EC, 2-dehydro-3-deoxyglucono/2-dehydro-3-deoxygalactonokinase.
