Orotidine, a nucleotide, is an intermediate in pyrimidine nucleotide biosynthesis in RNA and DNA. Orotidine is mainly found in bacteria, fungi and plants[1][2].

IC50 & Target

Human Endogenous Metabolite


In Vitro

Extant de novo biosynthetic pathway uses Orotidine 50-monophosphate to synthesize the canonical pyrimidine nucleotides in RNA and DNA. In this context, Orotidine is the only nucleotide that is synthesized through a ‘direct intermolecular nucleosidation’ step, with an attack of the fully-preformed nucleobase (orotic acid) on the activated 5-phosphoribosyl-diphosphate as opposed to the purine nucleotides whose heterocyclic rings are constructed stepwise on the sugar[1].

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
