General annotation (Comments)

Function

In latent infection, may allow the virus to be reactivated and to grow in cells lacking a high concentration of phosphorylated nucleic acid precursors, such as memory B-cells that do not replicate their genome. Catalyzes the transfer of the gamma-phospho group of ATP to thymidine to generate dTMP in the salvage pathway of pyrimidine synthesis. The dTMP serves as a substrate for DNA polymerase during DNA replication By similarity.

Catalytic activity

ATP + thymidine = ADP + thymidine 5'-phosphate.

Subunit structure

Homodimer By similarity.

Subcellular location

Virion tegument. Host nucleus By similarity. Note: Localizes to the centrosome and more precisely to the periphery of the centriole, tightly encircling the tubulin-rich centrioles By similarity.

Miscellaneous

Phosphorylates and thereby activates certain drugs like acyclovir (ACV), valacyclovir, and famciclovir to a toxic form, that leads to successful suppression of the infection, while the uninfected cell does not have this ability because it lacks TK By similarity.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the herpesviridae thymidine kinase family.
