ENZYME entry: EC 2.7.1.223

Accepted Name
Aminoimidazole riboside kinase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + 5-amino-1-(beta-D-ribosyl)imidazole <=> ADP + 5-amino-1-(5-phospho-beta-D-ribosyl)imidazole
Comment(s)
The enzyme, characterized from the bacterium Salmonella enterica, can phosphorylate exogeneously-provided 5-amino-1-(beta-D- ribosyl)imidazole to form 5-amino-1-(5-phospho-beta-D- ribosyl)imidazole (AIR), an important intermediate in the production of both purine mononucleotides and the hydroxymethyl pyrimidine moiety of thiamine.
