EC 1.5.1.50     
Accepted name: dihydromonapterin reductase
Reaction: 5,6,7,8-tetrahydromonapterin + NADP+ = 7,8-dihydromonapterin + NADPH + H+
Glossary: 7,8-dihydromonapterin = 2-amino-6-[(1S,2S)-1,2,3-trihydroxypropyl]-7,8-dihydropteridin-4(3H)-one
Other name(s): FolM; H2-MPt reductase
Systematic name: 5,6,7,8-tetrahydromonapterin:NADP+ oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme, found in many Gram negative bacteria, also slowly reduces 7,8-dihydrofolate to 5,6,7,8-tetrahydrofolate (cf. EC 1.5.1.3, dihydrofolate reductase). The enzyme has no activity with NADH.
