Accepted name: sepiapterin reductase (L-threo-7,8-dihydrobiopterin forming)
Reaction: (1) L-threo-7,8-dihydrobiopterin + NADP+ = sepiapterin + NADPH + H+
(2) L-threo-tetrahydrobiopterin + 2 NADP+ = 6-pyruvoyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydropterin + 2 NADPH + 2 H+
Glossary: sepiapterin = 2-amino-6-lactoyl-7,8-dihydropteridin-4(3H)-one
tetrahydrobiopterin = 5,6,7,8-tetrahydrobiopterin = 2-amino-6-(1,2-dihydroxypropyl)-5,6,7,8-tetrahydropteridin-4(3H)-one
Systematic name: L-threo-7,8-dihydrobiopterin:NADP+ oxidoreductase
Comments: This enzyme, isolated from the bacterium Chlorobium tepidum, catalyses the final step in the de novo synthesis of tetrahydrobiopterin from GTP. cf. EC, sepiapterin reductase (L-erythro-7,8-dihydrobiopterin forming).
