- ID: MMSYN1_0129
- Name: PyrG
- Organism: Mycoplasma mycoides
- UniProt ID: Q6MUA3
- Description: PyrG catalyzes the ATP-dependent amination of UTP to CTP with either L-glutamine or ammonia as the source of nitrogen. Regulates intracellular CTP levels through interactions with the four ribonucleotide triphosphates. This protein is involved in step 2 of the subpathway that synthesizes CTP from UDP .
- DNA Length: 1599 base pairs.

- Expression Level: High
- Expression Level Hypothesis: Because CTP is a necessary material in nucleotide synthesis, the expression level for pyrG is most likely high . It is the rate-limiting enzyme for the synthesis of cytosine nucleotides from both the de novo and uridine salvage pathways . Nucleotide synthesis is necessary for cells in the organism to perform DNA and RNA replication, which are necessary processes in order for genes to be expressed. Therefore, it makes sense that pyrG has a high expression level in the organism.

- Expression Time Hypothesis: Because CTP is a necessary material in nucleotide synthesis, the expression level for pyrG is most likely high . It is the rate-limiting enzyme for the synthesis of cytosine nucleotides from both the de novo and uridine salvage pathways . Nucleotide synthesis is required for cells to perform RNA and DNA synthesis, which are necessary for the organism to express genes at the beginning of its life cycle. Therefore, it makes sense that the expression time for pyrG is right at the beginning of the organism's life cycle.
