DAK Catalyzes both the phosphorylation of dihydroxyacetone and of glyceraldehyde, and the splitting of ribonucleoside diphosphate-X compounds among which FAD is the best substrate. Represses IFIH1-mediated cellular antiviral response. Belongs to the dihydroxyacetone kinase (DAK) family. Detected in erythrocytes (at protein level). 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
