Enzyme Commission Summary:
This enzyme is responsible for the de novo conversion of ribonucleoside diphosphates into deoxyribonucleoside diphosphates, which are essential for DNA synthesis and repair. An iron protein. While the enzyme is activated by ATP, it is inhibited by dATP [Larsson66, Qiu06].
