Riboflavin kinase

riboflavin kinase, flavokinase, RFK
Riboflavin kinase (RFK; EC is an essential enzyme that catalyzes the phosphorylation of riboflavin (vitamin B2) to form flavin mononucleotide (FMN), an obligatory step in vitamin B2 utilization and flavin cofactor synthesis (Karthikeyan et al., 2003 [PubMed 12623014]).[supplied by OMIM, Nov 2009] (from NCBI)
