Biopterin cofactor biosynthesis: GTP cyclohydrolase, neopterin and biopterin in tissues and body fluids of mammalian species.

Abstract

Levels of GTP cyclohydrolase, neopterin and biopterin were determined in tissues and body fluids of humans, monkey, dog and mouse. Highest levels of GTP cyclohydrolase and biopterin were found in pineal, liver, spleen, bone marrow, whole adrenal gland and small intestine. High levels of biopterin were found in the urine of all species examined. High levels of neopterin were found only in the urine of humans and monkeys, very low levels could be detected in dog, while none could be detected in mouse, rat, guinea pig or hamster urine.
