Comments [?]

Function Required for maturation of urease via the functional incorporation of the urease nickel metallocenter.
case not <OC:Helicobacter>
Subunit UreD, UreF and UreG form a complex that acts as a GTP-hydrolysis-dependent molecular chaperone, activating the urease apoprotein by helping to assemble the nickel containing metallocenter of UreC. The UreE protein probably delivers the nickel.
else case <OC:Helicobacter>
Subunit UreH, UreF and UreG form a complex that acts as a GTP-hydrolysis-dependent molecular chaperone, activating the urease apoprotein by helping to assemble the nickel containing metallocenter of UreC. The UreE protein probably delivers the nickel.
end case
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
Similarity Belongs to the UreD family.

Comments Called ureH in Helicobacter where ureD is an unrelated protein of the urease operon. Some E.coli EHEC strains are urease negative despite the presence of the operon in their genomes; in a few cases this has been shown to be due to nonsense mutations in ureD, for example ECO57. YERPE has a different nonsense mutation and is also non-functional. For some orally acquired pathogens (Brucella, Helicobacter, YERPE) urease acts as a virulence factor. In Brucella there are usually 2 urease operons.
