Metabolite Identification
Common Name1-hydroxy-2-Oxopropyl tetrahydropterin
Description1-hydroxy-2-oxopropyl tetrahydropterin belongs to pterins and derivatives class of compounds. Those are polycyclic aromatic compounds containing a pterin moiety, which consist of a pteridine ring bearing a ketone and an amine group to form 2-aminopteridin-4(3H)-one. 1-hydroxy-2-oxopropyl tetrahydropterin is slightly soluble (in water) and a very weakly acidic compound (based on its pKa). In humans, 1-hydroxy-2-oxopropyl tetrahydropterin is involved in the pterine biosynthesis. 1-hydroxy-2-oxopropyl tetrahydropterin is also involved in several metabolic disorders, some of which include hyperphenylalaninemia due to 6-pyruvoyltetrahydropterin synthase deficiency (ptps), hyperphenylalaninemia due to dhpr-deficiency, segawa syndrome, and hyperphenylalaniemia due to guanosine triphosphate cyclohydrolase deficiency. 1-hydroxy-2-Oxopropyl tetrahydropterin, an intermediate formed from 6-Pyrovoyl-Tetrahydropterin in the biosynthetic pathway of tetrahydrobiopterin [PMID: 19234759 ]..
