The de novo synthesis of UMP in S. pombe is outlined. Ura1 is a bi-functional enzyme consisting of carbamoyl phosphate synthetase I and aspartate transcarbamoylase, Ura2 is dihydroorotase, Ura3 is dihydroorotate dehydrogenase that requires quinone as a cofactor and localizes in mitochondria, Ura5 is orotate phosphoribosyltransferase, and Ura4 is OMP decarboxylase.
