ATP-regenerating enzymes may have an important role in maintaining ATP levels in mitochondria-like kinetoplast organelle and glycosomes in parasitic protozoa. Adenylate kinase (AK) (ATP:AMP phosphotransferase) catalyses the reversible transfer of the gamma-phosphate group from ATP to AMP, releasing two molecules of ADP. This study describes cloning and functional characterization of the gene encoding AK2 from a genomic library of Leishmania donovani and also its expression in leishmania… CONTINUE READING
