This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the CN hydrolase family. Beta-ureidopropionase catalyzes the last step in the pyrimidine degradation pathway. The pyrimidine bases uracil and thymine are degraded via the consecutive action of dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DHPDH), dihydropyrimidinase (DHP) and beta-ureidopropionase (UP) to beta-alanine and beta-aminoisobutyric acid...

Entrez Gene Summary for UPB1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the CN hydrolase family. Beta-ureidopropionase catalyzes the last step in the pyrimidine degradation pathway. The pyrimidine bases uracil and thymine are degraded via the consecutive action of dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DHPDH), dihydropyrimidinase (DHP) and beta-ureidopropionase (UP) to beta-alanine and beta-aminoisobutyric acid, respectively. UP deficiencies are associated with N-carbamyl-beta-amino aciduria and may lead to abnormalities in neurological activity. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for UPB1 Gene

UPB1 (Beta-Ureidopropionase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with UPB1 include Beta-Ureidopropionase Deficiency and Pyrimidine Metabolic Disorder. Among its related pathways are Beta-alanine metabolism (TR) and Pantothenate and CoA biosynthesis. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include hydrolase activity, acting on carbon-nitrogen (but not peptide) bonds and beta-ureidopropionase activity. An important paralog of this gene is NIT1.
