ⓘ Dihydrofolate synthase

In enzymology, a dihydrofolate synthase is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

ATP + 7.8-dihydropteroate + L-glutamate ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } ADP + phosphate + 7.8-dihydropteroylglutamate

The 3 substrates of this enzyme are ATP, 7.8-dihydropteroate, and L-glutamate, whereas its 3 products are ADP, phosphate, and 7.8-dihydropteroylglutamate.

This enzyme belongs to the family of ligases, specifically those forming carbon-nitrogen bonds as acid-D-amino-acid ligases peptide synthases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is 7.8-dihydropteroate:L-glutamate ligase ADP-forming. Other names in common use include dihydrofolate synthetase, 7.8-dihydrofolate synthetase, H2-folate synthetase, 7.8-dihydropteroate:L-glutamate ligase ADP, dihydrofolate synthetase-folylpolyglutamate synthetase, folylpoly-gamma-glutamate synthetase-dihydrofolate synthase, FHFS, FHFS/FPGS, dihydropteroate:L-glutamate ligase ADP-forming, and DHFS. This enzyme participates in folate biosynthesis.

Pino - logical board game which is based on tactics and strategy. In general this is a remix of chess, checkers and corners. The game develops imagination, concentration, teaches how to solve tasks, plan their own actions and of course to think logically. It does not matter how much pieces you have, the main thing is how they are placement!
