orotidylic acid

orotidylic acid
Orotidine 5′-monophosphate; an intermediate in the biosynthesis of the pyrimidine nucleosides (cytidine and uridine) that are found in nucleic acid s. SYN: orotidine 5′-monophosphate.
- o. decarboxylase an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of OMP to UMP and CO2; a defect or inhibition of this enzyme will result in orotic aciduria and orotidinuria; this enzyme is a part of pyrimidine biosynthesis. Cf.:uridylic acid synthase. SYN: OMP decarboxylase.
- o. pyrophosphorylase SYN: orotate phosphoribosyltransferase.
