UPP1 Human Recombinant protein produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 330 amino acids (1-310) and having a molecular mass of 29.3 kDa. UPP1 is fused to 20 amino acid His Tag at N-terminus and is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
UPP1 catalyzes the reversible phosphorylytic cleavage of uridine and deoxyuridine to uracil and ribose- or deoxyribose-1-phosphate which are used as carbon and energy sources or in the release of pyrimidine bases for nucleotide synthesis. UPP1 is part of the family of glycosyltransferases, specifically the pentosyltransferases. Pyrimidine nucleoside phosphorylases add ribose or deoxyribose to pyrimidine bases to form nucleosides that can be incorporated into RNA or DNA.
