Deoxyuridine 5’-triphosphate nucleotidohydrolase (DUTP) catalyzes the conversion of dUTP to dUMP and pyrophosphate (PPi). DUTP plays a key role in keeping significant amounts of dUTP from the DNA synthesis pathway. DUTP inhibitors are being tested as possible anti-bacterial agents targeting diseases like malaria, leishmaniasis, tuberculosis and trypanosomiasis. Prokaryotic DUTP contains metal ion.
