- ATP + L-homoserine ADP + O-phospho-L-homoserine
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring phosphorus-containing groups (phosphotransferases) with an alcohol group as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is ATP:L-homoserine O-phosphotransferase. Other names in common use include homoserine kinase (phosphorylating), and HSK. This enzyme participates in glycine, serine and threonine metabolism.
