Human name has changed for Entrez Gene: 6697. From sepiapterin reductase (7,8-dihydrobiopterin:NADP+ oxidoreductase) to sepiapterin reductase
summary from NCBI
This gene encodes an aldo-keto reductase that catalyzes the NADPH-dependent reduction of pteridine derivatives and is important in the biosynthesis of tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4). Mutations in this gene result in DOPA-responsive dystonia due to sepiaterin reductase deficiency. A pseudogene has been identified on chromosome 1. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
