Pyrimidine nucleotides represent one of the most fundamental of cellular components. They are the building blocks for the direct synthesis of DNA and RNA that function in information storage and retrieval within the cell, but they also participate in the metabolism of a large number of other cellular components from sugar interconversion to cellular polysaccharides to glycoproteins and phospholipids. Thus, the metabolism of pyrimidine nucleotides and their intracellular pool sizes influence… CONTINUE READING
