ADK ATP dependent phosphorylation of adenosine and other related nucleoside analogs to monophosphate derivatives. Serves as a potential regulator of concentrations of extracellular adenosine and intracellular adenine nucleotides. Belongs to the carbohydrate kinase PfkB family. Widely expressed. Highest level in placenta, liver, muscle and kidney. 4 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
