Protein

Uricase

Gene

Uro

Organism
Drosophila melanogaster (Fruit fly)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at transcript leveli

Functioni

Catalyzes the oxidation of uric acid to 5-hydroxyisourate, which is further processed to form (S)-allantoin.1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

Urate + O2 + H2O = 5-hydroxyisourate + H2O2.

Enzyme regulationi

Repressed by 20-hydroxyecdysone.1 Publication

Pathwayi: urate degradation

This protein is involved in step 1 of the subpathway that synthesizes (S)-allantoin from urate.
Proteins known to be involved in the 3 steps of the subpathway in this organism are:
  1. Uricase (Uro)
  2. no protein annotated in this organism
  3. no protein annotated in this organism
This subpathway is part of the pathway urate degradation, which is itself part of Purine metabolism.
View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes (S)-allantoin from urate, the pathway urate degradation and in Purine metabolism.
