Quinoid dihydropteridine reductase

dihydropteridine reductase, DHPR
This gene encodes the enzyme dihydropteridine reductase, which catalyzes the NADH-mediated reduction of quinonoid dihydrobiopterin. This enzyme is an essential component of the pterin-dependent aromatic amino acid hydroxylating systems. Mutations in this gene resulting in QDPR deficiency include aberrant splicing, amino acid substitutions, insertions, or premature terminations. Dihydropteridine reductase deficiency presents as atypical phenylketonuria due to insufficient production of biopterin, a cofactor for phenylalanine hydroxylase.

In situ visualizing T-Tubule/SR junction reveals the ultra-structures of calcium storage and release machinery.
Yang et al., Shanghai, China. In Int J Biol Macromol, Jan 2016

Gu et al., Yangzhou, China. In Yi Chuan, Aug 2015
Finally, nine candidate genes were obtained, among which four genes of FAM124A (Family with sequence similarity 124A), QDPR (Quinoid dihydropteridine reductase), WDR1 (WD repeat domain 1) and SLC2A9 (Solute carrier family 2 (facilitated glucose transporter), member 9) might be important candidate genes influencing body weight traits of Jinghai yellow chicken.
The disorders of the calcium release unit of skeletal muscles: what have we learned from mouse models?
Cancellara et al., Padova, Italy. In J Muscle Res Cell Motil, Feb 2015
The release from the Sarcoplasmic Reticulum stores (SR) is handled by a multiprotein complex called Calcium Release Unit and composed of DiHydroPyridine Receptor or DHPR, Ryanodine Receptor or RYR, Calsequestrin or CASQ, junctin, Triadin, Junctophilin and Mitsugumin 29.
Eps 15 Homology Domain (EHD)-1 Remodels Transverse Tubules in Skeletal Muscle.
McNally et al., Omaha, United States. In Plos One, 2014
The disorganized T-tubule structures in Ehd1-heterozygous muscle were accompanied by marked elevation of the T-tubule-associated protein DHPR and reduction of the triad linker protein junctophilin 2, reflecting defective triads.
Localized nuclear and perinuclear Ca(2+) signals in intact mouse skeletal muscle fibers.
Fink et al., Heidelberg, Germany. In Front Physiol, 2014
To investigate which type of Ca(2+) channels contribute to the Ca(2+) signals associated with nuclei in skeletal muscle fibers, we performed measurements with the RyR blocker dantrolene, the DHPR blocker nifedipine or the IP3R blocker Xestospongin C. We observed Ca(2+) signals associated with nuclei in the presence of each blocker.
Skeletal muscle excitation-contraction coupling: who are the dancing partners?
Dulhunty et al., Canberra, Australia. In Int J Biochem Cell Biol, 2014
This role of beta subunit remains to be fully investigated as well as the degree to which it may complement any other direct or indirect voltage-dependent coupling interactions between the DHPR alpha II-III loop and the ryanodine receptor.
Monoamine neurotransmitter deficiencies.
Pearl, Washington, D.C., United States. In Handb Clin Neurol, 2012
Disorders detectable by elevated serum phenylalanine are deficiencies of GTP cyclohydrolase (homozygous), pterin-carbinolamine dehydratase, dihydropteridine reductase, and pyruvoyl-tetrahydropterin synthase.
Junctophilin 1 and 2 proteins interact with the L-type Ca2+ channel dihydropyridine receptors (DHPRs) in skeletal muscle.

JP1 and JP2 can facilitate the assembly of DHPR with other proteins of the excitation-contraction coupling machinery
Reciprocal dihydropyridine and ryanodine receptor interactions in skeletal muscle activation.
Fraser et al., Cambridge, United Kingdom. In J Muscle Res Cell Motil, 2011
Dihydropyridine (DHPR) and ryanodine receptors (RyRs) are central to transduction of transverse (T) tubular membrane depolarisation initiated by surface action potentials into release of sarcoplasmic reticular (SR) Ca2+ in skeletal muscle excitation-contraction coupling.
The elusive role of the SPRY2 domain in RyR1.
Dulhunty et al., Australia. In Channels (austin), 2011
the electrostatic regulatory interaction between the SPRY2 F loop residues (that bind to imperatoxin A) and the ASI/basic residues of RyR1 does not influence bi-directional DHPR-RyR1 signaling during skeletal EC coupling

Dihydropteridine reductase activity in the brainstem of intrauterine growth-restricted rats.
Hernandez-Rodriguez et al., Mexico. In Int J Dev Neurosci, 2010
Data show that intrauterine growth restriction increases serotonin biosynthesis in the brainstem, which is accompanied by an increase in dihydropteridine reductase activity that may be a compensatory mechanism to maintain sufficient tetrahydrobiopterin.
Diminished expression of dihydropteridine reductase is a potent biomarker for hypertensive vessels.

results suggest that the deficiency in tetrahydrobiopterin regeneration produced by diminished dihydrobiopterin reductase expression is involved in vascular disorders in hypertensive rats.
