Reaction: ADP + thymidine = AMP + dTMP
Glossary: dTMP = thymidine 5'-phosphate
Other name(s): ADP:dThd phosphotransferase; adenosine diphosphate-thymidine phosphotransferase
Systematic name: ADP:thymidine 5'-phosphotransferase
Comments: The deoxypyrimidine kinase complex induced by Herpes simplex virus catalyses this reaction as well as those of EC 220.127.116.11 (thymidine kinase), EC 18.104.22.168 (AMPthymidine kinase) and EC 22.214.171.124 (dTMP kinase).
