Uracil salvage is necessary for early Arabidopsis development.


Uridine nucleotides can be formed by energy-consuming de novo synthesis or by the energy-saving recycling of nucleobases resulting from nucleotide catabolism. Uracil phosphoribosyltransferases (UPRTs; EC are involved in the salvage of pyrimidines by catalyzing the formation of uridine monophosphate (UMP) from uracil and phosphoribosylpyrophosphate… (More)
