Recombinant full length (aa 1-260) wild-type Human Deoxycytidine kinase (dCK) purified by nickel-sepharose chromatography.
Deoxycytidine kinase (dCK, EC:22.214.171.124) is required for the phosphorylation of the deoxyribonucleosides deoxycytidine (dC), deoxyguanosine (dG), and deoxyadenosine (dA). dCK has a broad substrate specificity, and does not display selectivity based on the chirality of the substrate. It is also an essential enzyme for the phosphorylation of numerous nucleoside analogs widely employed as antiviral and chemotherapeutic agents.
Also available: Human Deoxycytidine Kinase (dCK) (R104M, D133A)
From the laboratory of Arnon Lavie, PhD, University of Illinois at Chicago.
