Secondary Information

Protein Function Guanosine monophosphate (GMP) reductase catalyzes the reductive deamination of GMP to inosine monophosphate (IMP). GMP reductase plays an important role in the conversion of nucleoside and nucleotide derivatives of guanine to adenine nucleotides.
Biochemical Properties As a member of the purine salvage pathway, it participates in the reutilization of free intracellular bases. The protein forms a tetramer composed of subunits adopting the ubiquitous (alpha/beta)8 barrel fold. Interestingly, the substrate GMP is bound to hGMPR2 through interactions with Met269, Ser270, Arg286, Ser288, and Gly290; this makes the conformation of the adjacent flexible binding region (residues 268-289) fixed, much like a door on a hinge.

Additional Comments Cys186 is the potential active site, and that the conformation of the loop (residues 129-133) suggests a preference for the coenzyme NADPH over NADH.
