Reaction: ATP + 2'-deoxyadenosine = ADP + dAMP
Other name(s): purine-deoxyribonucleoside kinase
deoxyadenosine kinase (phosphorylating) (ambiguous); purine-deoxyribonucleoside kinase (ambiguous); deoxyadenosine kinase (ambiguous); ATP:deoxyadenosine 5'-phosphotransferase (ambiguous)
Systematic name: ATP:2'-deoxyadenosine 5'-phosphotransferase
Comments: 2'-Deoxyguanosine can also act as acceptor. Possibly identical with EC 18.104.22.168 deoxycytidine kinase.
