Pteridin-4 contains important enzyme cofactors that are naturally present in a number of foods, including mammalian breast milk and royal jelly. 

Tetrahydrobiopterin was discovered to play a role as an enzymatic cofactor. The first enzyme found to use tetrahydrobiopterin is phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH).

Tetrahydrobiopterin is biosynthesized from guanosine triphosphate (GTP) by three chemical reactions mediated by the enzymes GTP cyclohydrolase I (GTPCH),6-pyruvoyltetrahydropterin synthase (PTPS), and sepiapterin reductase (SR).

Functions:

Tetrahydrobiopterin has the following responsibilities as a cofactor:

 

  • Tryptophan hydroxylase (TPH) for the conversion of L-tryptophan(TRP) to5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP)
  • Phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) for conversion of L-phenylalanine(PHE) to L-tyrosine (TYR)
  • Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) for the conversion of L-tyrosine to L-DOPA(DOPA)
  • Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) for conversion of a guanidino nitrogen of L-arginine (L-Arg) to nitric oxide (NO)
  • Alkylglycerol monooxygenase (AGMO) for the conversion of 1-alkyl-sn-glycerol to 1-hydroxyalkyl-sn-glycerol
