Orotidine 5'-monophosphate decarboxylase (ODCase) catalyzes an unprecedented transformation of 6- cyanouridine 5'-monophosphate (6-CN-UMP) into barbiturate nucleoside 5'-monophosphate (6-hydroxyuridine 5'-monophosphate, BMP). The reactions of 6- cyano-1,3-dimethyluracil toward various nucleophilic conditions have been studied as chemical models in order to understand the possible mechanism for the ODCase-catalyzed transformation of 6-CN-UMP.
