In the biosynthetic pathway of pyrimidine nucleosides, ribose and uracil are the two products catalyzed by uridine nucleosidase. Certain concentrations of ribose and uracil may cause product inhibition of uridine nucleosidase and lead to the accumulation of uridine.
In this biosynthetic pathway, dihydroorotase that converts glutamine to dihydroorotate, dihydroorotate dehydrogenase that converts dihydroorotate to orotic acid, uridine monophosphate synthetase that converts orotic acid to UMP, 5,-nucleotidase that converts UMP to uridine, uridine nucleosidase that converts uridine to uracil, uridine kinase (udk) that converts cytidine to CMP, uridine/cytidine monophosphate (UMP-CMP) kinase that converts CMP to CDP, nucleoside-diphosphate kinase (ndk) that converts UDP to UTP, apyrase that converts CTP to CDP, inosine triphosphate pyrophosphatase (ITPA) that converts UMP to UTP, CTP synthase that converts UTP to CTP, and cytidine deaminase (cdd) that converts cytidine to uridine were annotated in the H.
