Pyrimidine Metabolism Service

Online Inquiry


Pyrimidine nucleotides play a crucial role in cellular metabolism serving as activated precursors of RNA and DNA, CDP diacylglycerol phosphoglyceride for the maintenance of cell membranes and UDP-sugars for protein glycosylation and glycogen synthesis. In essence, pyrimidine metabolism is a branch of nucleotide metabolism that produces nucleosides and deoxy/ribonucleotides of the pyrimidine bases including cytosine, thymine and uracil. Basically, pyrimidine metabolism comprises three pathways: 1) salvaging of free nucleosides and bases, 2) the de novo synthesis from amino acids and ribose precursors, and 3) the catabolism of excess nucleoside and nucleotides. The any disruption of these three pathways will result in the aberrant pyrimidine metabolism which is closely associated with a wide range of human pathologies like cancer and hereditary orotic aciduria. Scientists at Creative Proteomics take advantage of highly quantitative methods with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) for the determination of pyrimidine metabolism related metabolites levels in various samples. Furthermore, we provide reliable, rapid and cost-effective pyrimidine metabolism related service to speed up your research aims ranging from diseases diagnosis to gaining new insights in disease mechanism or treatment.
