Accepted name: dihydroneopterin phosphate aldolase
Reaction: 7,8-dihydroneopterin 3′-phosphate = 6-(hydroxymethyl)-7,8-dihydropterin + glycolaldehyde phosphate
Other name(s): H2NMP aldolase
Systematic name: 7,8-dihydroneopterin 3′-phosphate glycolaldehyde phosphate-lyase [6-(hydroxymethyl)-7,8-dihydropterin-forming]
Comments: The enzyme participates in methanopterin biosynthesis the archaeon Pyrococcus furiosus. The enzyme is specific for 7,8-dihydroneopterin 3′-phosphate. cf. EC, dihydroneopterin aldolase and EC, dihydroneopterin triphosphate aldolase.
