Protein

Dihydrofolate reductase

Gene

folA

Organism
Shigella flexneri
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Protein inferred from homologyi

Functioni

Key enzyme in folate metabolism. Catalyzes an essential reaction for de novo glycine and purine synthesis, and for DNA precursor synthesis (By similarity).By similarity

Catalytic activityi

5,6,7,8-tetrahydrofolate + NADP+ = 7,8-dihydrofolate + NADPH.PROSITE-ProRule annotation

Pathwayi: tetrahydrofolate biosynthesis

This protein is involved in step 1 of the subpathway that synthesizes 5,6,7,8-tetrahydrofolate from 7,8-dihydrofolate.
Proteins known to be involved in this subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Dihydrofolate reductase (folA), Dihydrofolate reductase (folA), Dihydrofolate reductase (dfrA12), Dihydrofolate reductase (CEG98_16360)
This subpathway is part of the pathway tetrahydrofolate biosynthesis, which is itself part of Cofactor biosynthesis.
View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes 5,6,7,8-tetrahydrofolate from 7,8-dihydrofolate, the pathway tetrahydrofolate biosynthesis and in Cofactor biosynthesis.
