No enzyme that specifically catalyzes this phosphatase reaction has been identified. It is thought that several non-specific phosphatases may catalyze this step [Suzuki74].
EC Number: 3.6.1.-7,8-dihydroneopterin 3'-phosphate + H2O → 7,8-dihydroneopterin + phosphate
The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.
