ENZYME entry: EC 4.1.2.50

Accepted Name
6-carboxytetrahydropterin synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
CPH4 synthase.
Reaction catalysed
7,8-dihydroneopterin 3'-triphosphate + H(2)O <=> 6-carboxy-5,6,7,8-tetrahydropterin + acetaldehyde + triphosphate
Cofactor(s)
Zn(2+).
Comment(s)
  • Isolated from the bacteria Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli.
  • The reaction is part of the biosynthesis pathway of queuosine.
  • The enzyme from Escherichia coli can also convert 6-pyruvoyl-5,6,7,8- tetrahydropterin and sepiapterin to 6-carboxy-5,6,7,8- tetrahydropterin.
