Structural investigations on orotate phosphoribosyltransferase from Mycobacterium tuberculosis, a key enzyme of the de novo pyrimidine biosynthesis


The Mycobacterium tuberculosis orotate phosphoribosyltransferase (MtOPRT) catalyses the conversion of α-D-5-phosphoribosyl-1-pyrophosphate (PRPP) and orotate (OA) in pyrophosphate and orotidine 5′-monophosphate (OMP), in presence of Mg2+. This enzyme is the only responsible for the synthesis of orotidine 5′-monophosphate, a key precursor in the de novo… (More)
