Sepiapterin reductase (IPR006393)

Short name: Sepiapterin_red

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


These sequences represent sepiapterin reductase, a member of the short chain dehydrogenase/reductase family. The enzyme catalyzes the last step in the biosynthesis of tetrahydrobiopterin. A similar enzyme in Bacillus cereus was isolated for its ability to convert benzil to (S)-benzoin, a property sepiapterin reductase also shares.
