Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Reaction: 1.3.1.1

Superclasses: Reactions Classified By Conversion Type Simple Reactions Chemical Reactions
Reactions Classified By Substrate Small-Molecule Reactions

EC Number: 1.3.1.1

Enzymes and Genes:
NAD-dependent dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase Inferred from experiment Inferred by computational analysis : preT , preA

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name: dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (NAD+)

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase, dihydrothymine dehydrogenase, pyrimidine reductase, thymine reductase, uracil reductase, dihydrouracil dehydrogenase (NAD+)

Enzyme Commission Summary:
An iron-sulfur flavoenzyme. The enzyme was originally discovered in the uracil-fermenting bacterium, Clostridium uracilicum, which utilizes uracil and thymine as nitrogen and carbon sources for growth [CAMPBELL57]. Since then the enzyme was found in additional organisms including Alcaligenes eutrophus [Schmitt96], Pseudomonas strains [Kim91, West01] and Escherichia coli [West98, Hidese11].
