Dihydrofolate reductase

dihydrofolate reductase, DHFR
Dihydrofolate reductase converts dihydrofolate into tetrahydrofolate, a methyl group shuttle required for the de novo synthesis of purines, thymidylic acid, and certain amino acids. While the functional dihydrofolate reductase gene has been mapped to chromosome 5, multiple intronless processed pseudogenes or dihydrofolate reductase-like genes have been identified on separate chromosomes. Dihydrofolate reductase deficiency has been linked to megaloblastic anemia. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Whole genome sequencing of diverse Shiga toxin-producing and non-producing Escherichia coli strains reveals a variety of virulence and novel antibiotic resistance plasmids.
Feng et al., Rockville, United States. In Plasmid, Jan 2016
Among the novel plasmids identified were eight that carried resistance genes to aminoglycosides, carbapenems, penicillins, cephalosporins, chloramphenicol, dihydrofolate reductase inhibitors, sulfonamides, tetracyclines and resistance to heavy metals.
E2F Transcription Factors Control the Roller Coaster Ride of Cell Cycle Gene Expression.
de Bruin et al., Utrecht, Netherlands. In Methods Mol Biol, Dec 2015
Afterwards it was shown that E2F also binds to promoters of nonviral genes such as C-MYC and DHFR, which were already known at that time to be important for cell growth and DNA metabolism, respectively.

Results are discussed for two classes of compounds inhibiting either β-lactamase or dihydrofolate reductase enzymes in a number of Gram-positive or Gram-negative cell lines.
Next-Generation Sequencing of Plasmodium vivax Patient Samples Shows Evidence of Direct Evolution in Drug-Resistance Genes.
Winzeler et al., San Diego, United States. In Acs Infect Dis, Sep 2015
In contrast we find more than three haplotypes in putative drug-resistance genes, including the gene encoding dihydrofolate reductase-thymidylate synthase and the P. vivax multidrug resistance associated transporter, suggesting that resistance mutations have arisen independently.
Cancer metabolism and oxidative stress: Insights into carcinogenesis and chemotherapy via the non-dihydrofolate reductase effects of methotrexate.
Khasawneh et al., Huntington, United States. In Bba Clin, Jun 2015
Though inhibition of dihydrofolate reductase is its best known mechanisms of action, its non-dihydrofolate reductase dependent mechanisms disrupt metabolic pathways resulting in a depletion of NAD(P)H and increasing oxidative stress.
The molecular basis of antifolate resistance in Plasmodium falciparum: looking beyond point mutations.
Kirkman et al., In Ann N Y Acad Sci, Apr 2015
The primary determinants of resistance in Plasmodium falciparum are well-described point mutations in the enzymes dihydropteroate synthase and dihydrofolate reductase targeted by the combination sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine. Recent work has highlighted the contributions of additional parasite adaptation to antifolate resistance.
Perspectives on electrostatics and conformational motions in enzyme catalysis.
Benkovic et al., United States. In Acc Chem Res, Mar 2015
We have used a combination of site-directed mutagenesis, pre-steady-state kinetics, X-ray crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), vibrational and fluorescence spectroscopies, resonance energy transfer, and computer simulations to study the implications of conformational motions and electrostatic interactions on enzyme catalysis in the enzyme dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR).
The importance of ensemble averaging in enzyme kinetics.
Truhlar et al., Barcelona, Spain. In Acc Chem Res, Mar 2015
We first illustrate the theory by discussing the application to both wild-type and mutant Escherichia coli dihydrofolate reductase and hyperthermophilic Thermotoga maritima dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR); DHFR is of special interest because the protein conformational changes have been widely studied.
