Structure and function of allophanate hydrolase.


Allophanate hydrolase converts allophanate to ammonium and carbon dioxide. It is conserved in many organisms and is essential for their utilization of urea as a nitrogen source. It also has important functions in a newly discovered eukaryotic pyrimidine nucleic acid precursor degradation pathway, the yeast-hypha transition that several pathogens utilize to… (More)
