Adenine Aminohydrolase from Leishmania donovani
TLDR
Deletion of the AAH locus in intact parasites established that AAH is not an essential gene and that Δaah cells are capable of salvaging the same range of purine nucleobases and nucleosides as wild type L. donovani. Expand
Purine and pyrimidine metabolism by estuarine bacteria
TLDR
Bacterial catabolism of particularly purines and their intermediates, and to lesser extent pyrimidines, is a major process by which the N moiety of natural, heterocyclic bases are converted into urea which is easily assimilated. Expand
Pyrimidine Salvage Enzymes in Microorganisms: Labyrinths of Enzymatic Diversity
Pyrimidine salvage pathways are essential to all cells. They provide a balance of RNA synthesis with the biosynthetic pathway in pyrimidine prototrophs and supply all the pyrimidine requirements inExpand
The biosynthetic origin of the pyridone ring of efrotomycin
TLDR
The results do not rule out the possibility of an alternative source of β-alanine or the coexistence of uracil catabolism via oxidative reactions, and this proposal is supported by support for this proposal. Expand
The transcription regulator AllR senses both allantoin and glyoxylate and controls a set of genes for degradation and reutilization of purines.
TLDR
It is found that a DNA-binding transcription factor AllR, together with AllS, plays a key role in switching control of two pathways, nitrogen assimilation and energy production. Expand
Allantoin catabolism influences the production of antibiotics in Streptomyces coelicolor
TLDR
Observations link the antibiotic production impairment with an imbalance in nitrogen metabolism and provide the first evidence of an interaction between purine metabolism and antibiotic biosynthesis. Expand
High-level expression and one-step purification of cyclic amidohydrolase family enzymes.
TLDR
The availability of the cyclic amidohydrolase family enzymes to fusion strategy shows potential as a convenient procedure to recombinant protein purification and accelerates the structure-function study of the related family enzymes. Expand

REDUCTIVE DEGRADATION OF PYRIMIDINES
Recent evidence has implicated the dihydropyrimidines as intermediates in the catabolism of certain pyrimidine bases. Funk et al. (1952) reported the isolation of dihydrouracil from beef spleen, andExpand

TLDR
The present study surveys cell-free preparations obtained from T. pyriformis for the presence of several purine-metabolizing enzymes known to occur in vertebrates, invertebrates, and microorganisms, and to determine some of the properties of these enzymes. Expand
Enzymic synthesis and breakdown of a pyrimidine, orotic acid. I. Dihydro-orotic dehydrogenase.
TLDR
Dihydro-orotic acid was as effective as orotic acid in supporting the growth of Lactobacillus bulgaricus 09, an organism which utilizes orotIC acid and ureidosuccinic acid for the synthesis of nucleic acid pyrimidines. Expand
On the mechanism of pyrimidine metabolism by yeasts.
TLDR
The oxidative mechanism proposed by Cerecedo and his collaborators for the degradation of uracil into urea was found inoperative in yeasts, and the following metabolic pathway for the assimilat,ion of pyrimidines by yeasts is suggested. Expand
INHIBITION OF THE BIOSYNTHESIS OF THE PYRIMIDINE PORTION OF THIAMINE BY ADENOSINE
  • H. Moyed

TLDR
The bacteriostatic effects of adenosine and several other purines on Aerobacter aerogenes can be overcome by either thiamine or the pyrimidine portion of thiamines, and it is suggested that these compounds either bypass the blocked reaction or participate in the detoxification ofAdenosine. Expand
Metabolism of pyrimidine nucleotides in a microorganism. 3. Enzymatic production of ribose-5-phosphate from uridine-5'-monophosphate by Pseudomonas oleovorans.
TLDR
Although degradation of R-5-P, the desired product, occurred during the course of the enzyme reaction, it was prevented by the addition of an appropriate amount of zinc ion and resulted in a stoichiometric conversion of UMP to R- 5-P and uracil. Expand
PHOSPHATE, PURINES AND PYRIMIDINES AS EXCRETORY PRODUCTS OF TETRAHYMENA.
TLDR
It is suggested that the effects of glucose and IAA on the extent of excretion represent alterations in the ability of the cells to utilize nucleic acid degradation products in RXA synthesis. Expand
Metabolism of cytosine, thymine, uracil, and barbituric acid by bacterial enzymes.
TLDR
The approach has been first to obtain strains which rapidly metabolize pyrimidines and then to investigate the detailed metabolic pathway with enzymes obtained from these bacteria, which has suggested the pathway of pyrimidine metabolism indicated in Fig. 1. Expand
Catabolism of Pyrimidines in Rape Seedlings.
TLDR
The objectives of the experiments described here were to extend the observations with the rape seedlings using suitable labelled pyrimidines, to confirm the existence of the indicated catabolic pathways and to investigate the subsequent metabolism of /8-alanine in the seedlings. Expand
