Dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR)

Dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) catalyzes the reduction of dihydrofolate to tetrahydrofolate using NADPH, and it is involved in the synthesis of raw material for cell proliferation, in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. DHFR inhibitors are commonly used for fighting malaria and other protozoal infections, as well as for treating fungal, bacterial, and mycobacterial infections.
