Uridine is one of the four basic components of ribonucleic acid (RNA); the other three are adenosine, guanosine, and cytidine. Upon digestion of foods containing RNA, uridine is released from RNA and is absorbed intact in the gut. Uridine plays a role in the glycolysis pathway of galactose.
Antiviral and Antienzyme Activity Baba et al., have shown in In Vitro studies that DSS inhibits the binding of various enveloped viruses including Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), Herpes Virus (HSV) and Cytomegalovirus (CMV) to cells. Additionally, DSS has also shown to exhibit a potent inhibitory effect on many enzymes, for example hyaluronidase, adenylate cyclase, and amylase. Hofer at al., have shown that DSS induces bacterial translocation in HIV-infected humanized mice.
