Orotic Acid Monohydrate Application Notes Orotic acid (OA) may be used to study the specificity and kinetics of orotate phosphoribosyltransferase (OPRT) which catalyzes the reversible phosphoribosyl transfer from 5'-phospho-a-d-ribose 1'-diphosphate (PRPP) to orotic acid (OA), forming pyrophosphate and orotidine 5'-monophosphate (OMP). Orotic acid is used as a starting material for the potential commercial bioproduction of uridine 5'-monophosphate (UMP) by microbes such as Corynebacterium ammoniagenes (ATCC 6872) or Saccharomyces cerevisiae. OA may be used to study the AMPK/SREBP-1 dependent cell signaling pathway and transcription regulation mechanisms that induce hepatic lipogenesis.
