Broad-specificity nucleoside monophosphate (NMP) kinase that catalyzes the reversible transfer of the terminal phosphate group between nucleoside triphosphates and monophosphates. AMP and dAMP are the preferred substrates, but CMP and dCMP are also good substrates. IMP is phosphorylated to a much lesser extent. All nucleoside triphosphates ATP, GTP, UTP, CTP, dATP, dCTP, dGTP, and TTP are accepted as phosphate donors. CTP is the best phosphate donor, followed by UTP, ATP, GTP and dCTP. May have a role in nuclear energy homeostasis. Has also ATPase activity. May be involved in regulation of Cajal body (CB) formation. This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the adenylate kinase family of enzymes. The protein has a nuclear localization and contains Walker A (P-loop) and Walker B motifs and a metal-coordinating residue. The protein may be involved in regulation of Cajal body formation. In human, AK6 and TAF9 (GeneID: 6880) are two distinct genes that share 5' exons. Alternative splicin ...more
