- dGTP + H2O deoxyguanosine + triphosphate
This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, specifically those acting on triphosphoric monoester bonds. The systematic name of this enzyme class is dGTP triphosphohydrolase. Other names in common use include deoxy-GTPase, deoxyguanosine 5-triphosphate triphosphohydrolase, deoxyguanosine triphosphatase, and deoxyguanosine triphosphate triphosphohydrolase. This enzyme participates in purine metabolism.
