Definition:The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the breakdown of tetrahydrobiopterin, the reduced form of biopterin (2-amino-4-hydroxy-6-(1,2-dihydroxypropyl)-pteridine). It functions as a hydroxylation coenzyme, e.g. in the conversion of phenylalanine to tyrosine.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: 5,6,7,8-tetrahydrobiopterin catabolic process;   tetrahydrobiopterin breakdown;   tetrahydrobiopterin catabolism;   tetrahydrobiopterin degradation
