Systematic name YBL039C
Gene name URA7
Feature type ORF, Verified
Coordinates Chr II:145728..143989
Primary SGDID S000000135

Description of YBL039C: Major CTP synthase isozyme (see also URA8); catalyzes the ATP-dependent transfer of the amide nitrogen from glutamine to UTP, forming CTP, the final step in de novo biosynthesis of pyrimidines; involved in phospholipid biosynthesis; URA7 has a paralog, URA8, that arose from the whole genome duplication[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]
