7,8-dihydroneopterin aldolase (MptD) superfamily (IPR036839)

Short name: MptD_sf

Overlapping entries


This superfamily of archaeal 7,8-dihydroneopterin aldolase (also known as dihydroneopterin aldolase) catalyses the conversion of 7,8-dihydroneopterin (H2Neo) to 6-hydroxymethyl-7,8-dihydropterin diphosphate (6-HMDP) [PMID: 22931285]. 6-HMDP is the precursor of the pterin containing moiety of the essential C1-carriers tetrahydrofolate and tetrahydromethanopterin.
