Comments [?]

Function This enzyme is involved in nucleotide metabolism: it produces dUMP, the immediate precursor of thymidine nucleotides and it decreases the intracellular concentration of dUTP so that uracil cannot be incorporated into DNA (By similarity).
Catalytic activity dUTP + H(2)O = dUMP + diphosphate.
Pathway Pyrimidine metabolism; dUMP biosynthesis; dUMP from dCTP (dUTP route); step 2/2.
Similarity Belongs to the dCTP deaminase family. Archaeal dUTPase subfamily.
