  5. Nucleoside diphosphate kinase C
  6. nm23-H3
Gene Name NME3
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Involved in nucleoside diphosphate kinase activity
Specific Function Major role in the synthesis of nucleoside triphosphates other than ATP. The ATP gamma phosphate is transferred to the NDP beta phosphate via a ping-pong mechanism, using a phosphorylated active-site intermediate. Probably has a role in normal hematopoiesis by inhibition of granulocyte differentiation and induction of apoptosis.
