ENZYME entry: EC 1.3.5.2

Accepted Name
Dihydroorotate dehydrogenase (quinone).
Alternative Name(s)
DHOD.
DHOdehase.
DHODH.
Reaction catalysed
(S)-dihydroorotate + a quinone <=> orotate + a quinol
Cofactor(s)
FMN.
Comment(s)
  • This Class 2 dihydroorotate dehydrogenase enzyme contains FMN.
  • The enzyme is found in eukaryotes in the mitochondrial membrane, and in some Gram negative bacteria associated with the cytoplasmic membrane.
  • The reaction is the only redox reaction in the de-novo biosynthesis of pyrimidine nucleotides.
  • The best quinone electron acceptors for the enzyme from bovine liver are ubiquinone-6 and ubiquinone-7, although simple quinones, such as benzoquinone, can also act as acceptor at lower rates.
  • Methyl-, ethyl-, tert-butyl and benzyl-(S)-dihydroorotates are also substrates, but 1- and 3-methyl and 1,3-dimethyl methyl-(S)- dihydroorotates are not.
  • Class 1 dihydroorotate dehydrogenases use either fumarate (EC 1.3.98.1), NAD(+) (EC 1.3.1.14) or NADP(+) (EC 1.3.1.15) as electron acceptor.
  • Formerly EC 1.3.99.11.
