Previous GeneCards Identifiers for BPNT1 Gene
BPNT1, also called bisphosphate 3-prime-nucleotidase, or BPntase, is a member of a magnesium-dependent phosphomonoesterase family. Lithium, a major drug used to treat manic depression, acts as an uncompetitive inhibitor of BPntase. The predicted human protein is 92% identical to mouse BPntase. BPntase's physiologic role in nucleotide metabolism may be regulated by inositol signaling pathways. The inhibition of human BPntase may account for lithium-induced nephrotoxicity.

GeneCards Summary for BPNT1 Gene
BPNT1 (3'(2'), 5'-Bisphosphate Nucleotidase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Phase II conjugation and Sulfur metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include magnesium ion binding and 3(2),5-bisphosphate nucleotidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is IMPAD1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BPNT1 Gene
Converts adenosine 3-phosphate 5-phosphosulfate (PAPS) to adenosine 5-phosphosulfate (APS) and 3(2)-phosphoadenosine 5- phosphate (PAP) to AMP. Has 1000-fold lower activity towards inositol 1,4-bisphosphate (Ins(1,4)P2) and inositol 1,3,4-trisphosphate (Ins(1,3,4)P3), but does not hydrolyze Ins(1)P, Ins(3,4)P2, Ins(1,3,4,5)P4 or InsP6.
