Abstract

As an enzyme, dihydrofolate reductase performs two tasks: transformation of its substrate dihydrofolate or folate to tetrahydrofolate, using NADPH as a cofactor, and regeneration of the enzyme for a subsequent round of catalysis. Studies discussed in this review highlight the role of conformational flexibility in both of these enzymatic functions.
