High impact information on Qdpr

  • When the x-ray structure of dihydropteridine reductase is correlated with conserved amino acid sequences characteristic of this enzyme class, two important common structural regions can be identified [2].
  • Assignment of a gene for human quinoid-dihydropteridine reductase (QDPR, EC to chromosome 4 [3].
  • An acrylamide gel electrophoretic procedure is described which allows the separation of human quinoid-dihydropteridine reductase (QDPR), EC from the homologous enzyme expressed in established rodent cell lines [3].
