Chlamydia trachomatis : GTP cyclohydrolase II Inferred by computational analysis : ribBA
Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 : GTP cyclohydrolase II Inferred from experiment : ribA
Saccharomyces cerevisiae : GTP cyclohydrolase II Inferred from experiment : RIB1

In Pathway: flavin biosynthesis I (bacteria and plants) , flavin biosynthesis III (fungi) , 6-hydroxymethyl-dihydropterin diphosphate biosynthesis III (Chlamydia)

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: GTP cyclohydrolase II

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: guanosine triphosphate cyclohydrolase II, GTP-8-formylhydrolase

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -96.9801 Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Two C-N bonds are hydrolysed, releasing formate, with simultaneous removal of the terminal diphosphate.
