Short name: OHCU_decarboxylase_sf

Overlapping entries


The proteins in this entry are OHCU decarboxylase, an enzyme of the purine catabolism that catalyses the conversion of OHCU into S(+)-allantoin [PMID: 16462750]; it is the third step of the conversion of uric acid (a purine derivative) to allantoin. Step one is catalysed by urate oxidase (IPR002042) and step two is catalysed by hydroxyisourate hydrolase (IPR000895).
