This system has been suggested to serve as the source of formyl groups for the synthesis of formylmethionyl tRNA required for protein synthesis in rnitochondria. Its location in rnitochondria is consistent with its resemblence to DC enzyme complex found in bacteria (79). In contrast to the DC portion of the cytosolic trifunctional enzyme complex, it has an absolute requirement for Mg2+ and Pi (80). It is proposed that Mg2+ and Pi substitute for the 2' phosphate on the adenosine portion of NADPH because it has a 44% amino acid sequence identity with the DC domain of yeast mitochondrial NADP-dependent trifunc- 24 Kisliuk tional enzyme, the human NAD-dependent enzyme has a low, Mg 2 + -dependent turnover with NADP, and PI competes for NADP binding.

4 Dihydrofolate Reductase In contrast with SHMT (a tetramer) and TS (a dimer), human DHFR is monomeric (22 kDa). It catalyzes the reduction of7,8-H2PteGlun to 5,6,7,8-H4 PteGlun (64). The human enzyme has been cloned, expressed, and crystallized (65) and the IH and I5N nuclear magnetic resonance assignments obtained (66). Again in contrast with SHMT and TS, the primary structures of eukaryotic DHFRs are not highly homologous, only 20% of the residues of human DHFR are identical to those found in eight other eukaryotic DHFRs (64).
