General Information
experimental resurrection of the last common ancestor of the hydroxymethyl pyrimidine kinase group based on comparison of hydroxymethyl pyrimidine and pyridoxal kinases. Probably the last common ancestor was not able to use pyridoxal under physiological conditions. The pyridoxal kinase activity present in the current bifunctional enzymes must have appeared in a convergent event independently of the pyridoxal kinase activity of pdxY and pdxK genes. Substrate pyridoxal is 8-times less preferred than the phosphorylation of hydroxymethyl pyrimidine by the last ancestor
