Uridine phosphorylase 1

uridine phosphorylase, UPP, UPRT
The 2 known types of pyrimidine nucleoside phosphorylases, uridine phosphorylase (UP; EC 2.4.2.3) and thymidine phosphorylase (TP; EC 2.4.2.4), in the presence of orthophosphate, catalyze the reversible phosphorolysis of uridine and thymidine or deoxyuridine, respectively, to free bases and ribose-1-phosphate or deoxyribose-1-phosphate. Pyrimidine nucleoside phosphorylases can add ribose or deoxyribose to pyrimidine bases to form nucleosides that can be incorporated into RNA or DNA (Watanabe and Uchida, 1995 [PubMed 7488099]).[supplied by OMIM, Aug 2009] (from NCBI)

p97/VCP promotes Cullin-RING-ubiquitin-ligase/proteasome-dependent degradation of IκBα and the preceding liberation of RelA from ubiquitinated IκBα.
New
Naumann et al., Magdeburg, Germany. In J Cell Mol Med, Jan 2016
While RelA phosphorylation was observed to mediate NF-κB activation independent of Ub-proteasome-pathway (UPP)-dependent turnover of IκBα in some studies, a strict requirement of the p97/VCP ATPase for both, IκBα degradation and NF-κB activation, was reported in others.

New
Ooi et al., Singapore, Singapore. In Plos Negl Trop Dis, Nov 2015
The dependence on the UPP for successful DENV production is further reinforced by the observed up-regulation of key UPP molecules upon DENV infection that overcome the relatively low expression of these genes after a blood meal.

New
Ooi et al., Singapore, Singapore. In Plos Negl Trop Dis, Nov 2015
Many studies have identified the ubiquitin proteasome pathway (UPP) to be important for successful DENV production, but how the UPP contributes to DENV life cycle as host factors remains ill defined.

The Ubiquitin-Proteasome Pathway (UPP), which is critical for normal function in the nervous system and is implicated in various neurological diseases, requires the small modifier protein ubiquitin to accomplish its duty of selectively degrading short-lived, abnormal or misfolded proteins.

Review
Balestri et al., Pisa, Italy. In Curr Med Chem, 2012
Intracellular balance of nucleosides is maintained by the action of several enzymes, such as adenosine deaminase, uridine phosphorylase and cytidine deaminase, and by at least three 5'-nucleotidases, the ADP activated AMP preferring cN-IA, the ATP-ADP activated IMP-GMP preferring cN-II, and the UMP-CMP preferring cN-III.
