Cytosolic deoxycytidine kinase (DCK) catalyzes the reactions of deoxyadenosine and deoxyguanosine with ATP to form the corresponding nucleotide monophosphates and AMP, The enzyme is a dimer (Bohman and Eriksson 1988; Datta et al. 1989). While the enzyme can be found in nuclei of cultured cells expressing high levels of a tagged recombinant protein, its normal location appears to be cytosolic (Hatzis et al. 1998).
