Reaction: ATP + NH3 = ADP + phosphoramide
Other names: phosphoramidate-adenosine diphosphate phosphotransferase; phosphoramidate-ADP-phosphotransferase
Systematic name: ATP:ammonia phosphotransferase
Comments: Has a wide specificity. In the reverse direction, N-phosphoglycine and N-phosphohistidine can also act as phosphate donors, and ADP, dADP, GDP, CDP, dTDP, dCDP, IDP and UDP can act as phosphate acceptors (in decreasing order of activity).
