Pathwayi: urea degradation

This protein is involved in step 1 of the subpathway that synthesizes CO(2) and NH(3) from urea (urease route).UniRule annotation
Proteins known to be involved in this subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Urease subunit alpha (ureC), Urease subunit beta (ureB), Urease subunit gamma (ureA)
This subpathway is part of the pathway urea degradation, which is itself part of Nitrogen metabolism.

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into one UniRef entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
