PTP Synthase, 6-Pyruvoyl Tetrahydropterin Synthase, PTPS, PTS, FLJ97081.
6-PyruvoylTetrahydropterin Synthase is part of the family of lyases, specifically those carbon-oxygen lyases acting on phosphates. 6-PyruvoylTetrahydropterin Synthase catalyzes the elimination of inorganic triphosphate from dihydroneopterin triphosphate, which is the second and irreversible step in the biosynthesis of tetrahydrobiopterin from GTP. Tetrahydrobiopterin, is a necessary cofactor and regulator of a range of enzyme activities, including enzymes involved in serotonin biosynthesis and NO synthase activity. Mutations in 6-PyruvoylTetrahydropterin Synthase gene result in hyperphenylalaninemia.
6-PyruvoylTetrahydropterin Synthase Human Recombinant produced in e.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 165 amino acids (1-145) and having a molecular mass of 18.5kDa. 6-PyruvoylTetrahydropterin Synthase is fused to a 20 amino acid His Tag at N-terminus and purified using conventional chromatography techniques.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
6-PyruvoylTetrahydropterin Synthase is formulated in 20mM Tris-HCl buffer pH-8, 1mM DTT and 20% glycerol.
