22632162 HIV-1 Tat 47-59 peptide downregulates gene expression of uridine phosphorylase 1 (UPP1) in U-937 macrophages
20856879 The dimeric enzyme is capable of a large hinge motion facilitating ligand exchange.
19714313 Data show that enhanced cytotoxicity of 5-FU by bFGF through modulating the expression of UPP1 at the transcription level.
19291308 The presented structures confirm that hUPP1 is dimeric. They also reveal the mechanism by which 5-benzylacyclouridine engages the active site of the protein and disables the enzyme by locking the protein in a closed conformation.
16798057 Thymidine phosphorylase and uridine phosphorylase were both responsible for converting 5'dFUrd/5FU into 5FU/FUrd, respectively
12115385 Uridine phosphorylase overexpression is associated with lymph node metastasis in oral neoplasms
12084455 Characterization of the promoter region of UPase has indicated a direct regulation of its expression by the tumor suppressor gene p53. Review.
11807789 The expression level of UPase gene may be an independent prognostic marker in human breast carcinoma
