Description

Dihydroneopterin triphosphate diphosphatase is a Nudix domain containing enzyme involved in folate biosynthesis. It catalyses the hydrolysis of dihydroneopterin triphosphate to dihydroneopterin monophosphate and pyrophosphate. It can also hydrolyse nucleoside triphosphates with a preference for dATP [PMID: 8798731, PMID: 17698004].
