, a pyrimidodiazepine synthase
is an enzyme
the chemical reaction
- a pyrimidodiazepine + glutathione disulfide + H2O 6-pyruvoyltetrahydropterin + 2 glutathione
The 3 substrates of this enzyme are pyrimidodiazepine, glutathione disulfide, and H2O, whereas its two products are 6-pyruvoyltetrahydropterin and glutathione.
This enzyme belongs to the family of oxidoreductases, specifically those acting on the CH-NH group of donors with a disulfide as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is pyrimidodiazepine:glutathione-disulfide oxidoreductase (ring-opening, cyclizing). Other names in common use include PDA synthase, pyrimidodiazepine:oxidized-glutathione oxidoreductase (ring-opening,, and cyclizing). This enzyme participates in glutathione metabolism.
