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), Urease (ureC), Urease subunit gamma (ureA), Urease subunit beta (ureB), Urease subunit alpha (ureC)
This subpathway is part of the pathway urea degradation, which is itself part of Nitrogen metabolism.

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1.
