RutA-Catalyzed Oxidative Cleavage of the Uracil Amide Involves Formation of a Flavin-N5-oxide. Academic Article uri icon


  • RutA is a novel flavoenzyme on the uracil catabolic pathway that catalyzes uracil ring opening by a unique amide oxidation reaction. Here we provide evidence that this reaction also involves the formation of a flavin-N5-oxide.
