Induction studies on pyrimidine metabolizing enzymes in E. coli B have shown that the enzymes fall into three distinct groups according to their induction pattern. a) Cytidine deaminase and uridine phosphorylase, are induced by cytidine, CMP and adenosine; no induction was observed with uridine and AMP; b) thymidine phosphorylase is induced by cytidine, adenosine, all deoxyribonucleosides, CMP, deoxyribonucleotides, deoxyribose and deoxyribose-1-phosphate; c) uridine-cytidine kinase, uracil… CONTINUE READING
