Accepted name: dUTP diphosphatase
Reaction: dUTP + H2O = dUMP + diphosphate
Other name(s): DUT (gene name); deoxyuridine-triphosphatase; dUTPase; dUTP pyrophosphatase; desoxyuridine 5′-triphosphate nucleotidohydrolase; desoxyuridine 5′-triphosphatase
Systematic name: dUTP nucleotidohydrolase
Comments: The enzyme catalyses the Mg2+-dependent hydrolysis of dUTP to dUMP, providing the substrate for EC, thymidylate synthase, leading to production of thymidine nucleotides. By reducing the effective ratio of dUTP to TTP, the enzyme also reduces the possibility of dUTP incorporation into DNA.
