(6R)-5,6,7,8-Tetrahydro-L-biopterin Dihydrochloride is a co-factor for nitric oxide synthase.

  • (6R)-5,6,7,8-Tetrahydro-L-biopterin Dihydrochloride is necessary for vivo for the conversion of phenylalanine to tyrosine and for the production of the hormone epinephrine and of the monoamine neurotransmitters, serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine
  • It is also involved in apoptosis and other cellular events mediated by nitric oxide production and catalyzes the cleavage of alkylglycerol ethers
  • (6R)-BH4 has been used as a buffer component for assaying tyrosine hydroxylase enzyme activity in mouse brain tissues
  • Natural cofactor for phenylalanine hydroxylase, tyrosine hydroxylase, tryptophan hydroxylase, and nitric oxide synthetase
