Protein

Uridylate kinase

Gene

pyrH

Organism
Escherichia coli (strain K12)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Catalyzes the reversible phosphorylation of UMP to UDP, with ATP as the most efficient phosphate donor.1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

ATP + UMP = ADP + UDP.

Enzyme regulationi

Allosterically activated by GTP. Competitively inhibited by magnesium-free UTP. Magnesium-bound UTP is unable to inhibit enzyme activity.2 Publications

Kineticsi

  1. KM=120 µM for ATP1 Publication
  2. KM=50 µM for UMP1 Publication

Pathwayi: CTP biosynthesis via de novo pathway

This protein is involved in step 1 of the subpathway that synthesizes UDP from UMP (UMPK route).
Proteins known to be involved in this subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Uridylate kinase (pyrH)
This subpathway is part of the pathway CTP biosynthesis via de novo pathway, which is itself part of Pyrimidine metabolism.
View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes UDP from UMP (UMPK route), the pathway CTP biosynthesis via de novo pathway and in Pyrimidine 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.
