NameDeoxyuridine 5'-triphosphate nucleotidohydrolase
  • dUTPase
  • dUTP pyrophosphatase
Gene NameDUT1
Enzyme Class
Biological Properties
General FunctionInvolved in hydrolase activity
Specific FunctionThis enzyme is involved in nucleotide metabolism:it produces dUMP, the immediate precursor of thymidine nucleotides and it decreases the intracellular concentration of dUTP so that uracil cannot be incorporated into DNA
