Summaries for RRM1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RRM1 Gene

  • This gene encodes the large and catalytic subunit of ribonucleotide reductase, an enzyme essential for the conversion of ribonucleotides into deoxyribonucleotides. A pool of available deoxyribonucleotides is important for DNA replication during S phase of the cell cycle as well as multiple DNA repair processes. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2015]

    792 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    90070 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Heterodimer of a large and a small subunit. Heterodimer with small subunit RRM2 or RRM2B. The heterodimer with RRM2 has higher catalytic activity than the heterodimer with RRM2B. Interacts with AHCYL1 which inhibits its activity.
    • The level of the enzyme activity is closely correlated with the growth rate of a cell and appears to vary with the cell cycle.
    • Two distinct regulatory sites have been defined: the specificity site, which controls substrate specificity, and the activity site which regulates overall catalytic activity. A substrate-binding catalytic site, located on M1, is formed only in the presence of the second subunit M2.

Function for RRM1 Gene

Molecular function for RRM1 Gene

GENATLAS Biochemistry:
ribonucleotide diphosphate reductase M1 polypeptide,pyrimidine biosynthetic pathway,putative metastasis suppressor (see TSG11D)
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot CatalyticActivity:
2-deoxyribonucleoside diphosphate + thioredoxin disulfide + H(2)O = ribonucleoside diphosphate + thioredoxin.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot EnzymeRegulation:
Under complex allosteric control mediated by deoxynucleoside triphosphates and ATP binding to separate specificity and activation sites on the M1 subunit. The type of nucleotide bound at the specificity site determines substrate preference. It seems probable that ATP makes the enzyme reduce CDP and UDP, dGTP favors ADP reduction and dTTP favors GDP reduction. Stimulated by ATP and inhibited by dATP binding to the activity site, the dATP inhibition is mediated by AHCYL1 which stabilizes dATP in the site.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Provides the precursors necessary for DNA synthesis. Catalyzes the biosynthesis of deoxyribonucleotides from the corresponding ribonucleotides.
