- Name: pyrH_bact: UMP kinase
- Organism: Mycoplasma mycoides JCVI-Syn3.0
- UniProt ID: Mycoplasma mycoides entry F4MQB3
- Description: UMP kinase  is an enzyme that catalyzes the reaction that turns Adenosine triphosphate, ATP,  and Uridine monophosphate, UMP,  into Adenosine Diphosphate, ADP,  and Uridine diphosphate, UDP. This is an important reaction in cells because ATP is involved in cellular respiration and the regulation of it is crucial. Additionally, the synthesis of UDP is critical because UDP is the starting point of the synthesis of pyrimidine nucleotides, Thymine (T) and Cytosine (C) . These are half of the base pairs that make up DNA, so it important for UMP kinase to catalyze this reaction and eventually aid in the production of essential nucleotides. Without UMP kinase to speed up the reaction of ATP and UMP to ADP and UDP could not be replicated.

- Expression Level: Medium, 12 Proteins/cell
- Expression Level Hypothesis: It makes sense that the Uridylate Kinase gene would be expressed to a medium level because the gene does play a crucial role in the cell, but does not need to be created constantly. UMP kinase is essential as a catalyst for the reaction that turns ATP and UMP into ADP and UDP. Furthermore, this reaction leads to the synthesis of half of the nucleotides, so it is critical that the cells have enough of the gene in the cell. That being said, this enzyme is a catalyst and does not get used up during the reaction, so the cells only need a medium amount of the gene instead of a high expression level.
- Expression Level References and Description: Data for the expression level was gathered from the M. genitalium database . The exact gene was listed in the database.
- Expression Time: Early
- Expression Level Hypothesis: Based on the function of the UMP kinase gene, the gene should be expressed early because the gene is involved in the reaction that makes nucleotides. It is crucial to have nucleotides in order to create mRNA and additional proteins, so UMP kinase should be expressed earlier.
- Expression Time References and Description: The expression time was deduced from the function of the gene. Because UMP kinase is a transferase enzyme, it is important to have expressed early on. .
- Other Components: No other components
- Possible Dependencies: Because this protein is a catalyst, it requires the chemicals to be present; therefore, the protein is dependent on adenosine triphosphate and uridine monophosphate synthesis.
- Process: Catalyst to the reaction that turns ATP and UMP into ADP and UDP
- Inputs: ATP, UMP
- Outputs: ADP, UDP
