Official Full Name
dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase
Background
The protein encoded by this gene is a pyrimidine catabolic enzyme and the initial and rate-limiting factor in the pathway of uracil and thymidine catabolism. Mutations in this gene result in dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase deficiency, an error in pyrimidine metabolism associated with thymine-uraciluria and an increased risk of toxicity in cancer patients receiving 5-fluorouracil chemotherapy. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2009]
Synonyms
DPYD; dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase; DHP; DPD; DHPDHASE; dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase [NADP(+)]; dihydrouracil dehydrogenase; dihydrothymine dehydrogenase; MGC70799; MGC132008
