Interconversion of different molecular weight forms of the orotate phosphoribosyltransferase.orotidine-5'-phosphate decarboxylase enzyme complex from mouse Ehrlich ascites cells.

Abstract

Complex U consists of orotate phosphoribosyltransferase (EC 2.4.2.10) and orotidineG’-phosphate decarboxylase (EC 4.1.1.23), the last two enzymes of the de nova pathway for UMP biosynthesis. Earlier studies had shown that orotate and magnesium 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate, substrates for the transferase, and orotidine 5’-monophosphate (OMP), the product… (More)
