Uridine-cytidine kinase 2

Uridine Kinase, uridine monophosphate kinase, UMPK
This gene encodes a pyrimidine ribonucleoside kinase. The encoded protein (EC catalyzes phosphorylation of uridine and cytidine to uridine monophosphate (UMP) and cytidine monophosphate (CMP), respectively.[provided by RefSeq, Oct 2010] (from NCBI)
