Carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase 2, aspartate transcarbamylase, and dihydroorotase

Aspartate Carbamoyltransferase, Dihydroorotase, ura4
The de novo synthesis of pyrimidine nucleotides is required for mammalian cells to proliferate. This gene encodes a trifunctional protein which is associated with the enzymatic activities of the first 3 enzymes in the 6-step pathway of pyrimidine biosynthesis: carbamoylphosphate synthetase (CPS II), aspartate transcarbamoylase, and dihydroorotase. This protein is regulated by the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascade, which indicates a direct link between activation of the MAPK cascade and de novo biosynthesis of pyrimidine nucleotides.

New
Konishi et al., Shōbara, Japan. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, Feb 2016
We identified CIPC-binding proteins such as the multifunctional enzyme CAD protein (carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase 2, aspartate transcarbamoylase, and dihydroorotase), which is a key enzyme for de novo pyrimidine synthesis.

New
Lorenz, Aberdeen, United Kingdom. In Yeast, Dec 2015
Moreover, strains with single gene deletions or tags often already exist in strain collections; for historical reasons these will mostly carry the ura4(+) gene or the G418-resistance kanMX as marker.
Diversion of aspartate in ASS1-deficient tumours fosters de novo pyrimidine synthesis.
New
Impact
Erez et al., Israel. In Nature, Dec 2015
Here we show that decreased activity of ASS1 in cancers supports proliferation by facilitating pyrimidine synthesis via CAD (carbamoyl-phosphate synthase 2, aspartate transcarbamylase, and dihydroorotase complex) activation.
A vector system for efficient and economical switching of a ura4(+) module to three commonly used antibiotic marker cassettes in Schizosaccharomyces pombe.
New
Jin et al., Xiamen, China. In Yeast, Nov 2015
We describe here the development of a set of plasmid vectors that allow simple, efficient and economical switching of a ura4(+) module in existing Schizosaccharomyces pombe strains to any of the three routinely used antibiotic marker cassettes, kanMX6, hphMX6 and natMX6.

Stimulation of de novo pyrimidine synthesis by growth signaling through mTOR and S6K1.
Impact
Manning et al., Boston, United States. In Science, 2013
mTORC1 signaling posttranslationally regulated this metabolic pathway via its downstream target ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (S6K1), which directly phosphorylates S1859 on CAD (carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase 2, aspartate transcarbamoylase, dihydroorotase), the enzyme that catalyzes the first three steps of de novo pyrimidine synthesis.
Quantitative phosphoproteomics reveal mTORC1 activates de novo pyrimidine synthesis.
Impact
Hall et al., Basel, Switzerland. In Science, 2013
mTOR controlled the phosphorylation of 335 proteins, including CAD (carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase 2, aspartate transcarbamylase, and dihydroorotase).
Identification of CAD as an androgen receptor interactant and an early marker of prostate tumor recurrence.
GeneRIF
Cabon et al., Villejuif, France. In Faseb J, 2012
findings show that in prostate tumor cells, CAD fosters androgen receptor translocation into the nucleus and stimulates its transcriptional activity; in radical prostatectomy specimens, CAD expression was not correlated with proliferation markers, but a higher CAD mRNA level was associated with local tumor extension and cancer relapse
Dare to challenge the silence? Telomeric gene silencing revisited.
Review
Yankulov, Guelph, Canada. In Nucleus, 2011
The gene silencing analyses in these species very often include the FOA-sensitivity assay, which detects the suppression of a reporter gene (URA3 in S. cerevisiae and URA4 in S. pombe) inserted at genomic locations of choice.

Leflunomide, an inhibitor of the dihydroorotase dehydrogenase and thereby pyrimidine synthesis, was introduced and licensed for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis in 1998.
