Gene: DPYD (dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: DPYD
Name: dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase
CRRD ID: 731730
Description: Exhibits dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (NADP+) activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in nucleobase catabolic process and thymidine catabolic process. Localizes to cytosol. Implicated in acute lymphoblastic leukemia; dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase deficiency; and pancreatic cancer. Biomarker of gallbladder cancer and pancreatic cancer.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
