Possible Interaction: Fluorouracil and Orotic Acid


Orotic Acid

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

The 5-bromo, 5-chloro and 5-fluoro analogs of orotic acid were demonstrated to produce single or multiple blocking actions against this system.

They are more effective than 5-fluorouracil in inhibiting incorporation of formate and orotic acid into RNA, thymidine into DNA, and phenylalanine into proteins.

Later, Bonner and Zeevaart (2) showed that 5-FU inhibited the incorporation of orotic acid into both RNA and DNA.
The inhibitory effect of 5-FU could be reversed by applying orotic acid at the same time as the application of 5-FU.

5-Fluorouracil has been shown to interfere with the appearance of the elements of formic acid in the thymine component of nucleic …); it intervenes in the synthesis of ribonucleic acid, as evidenced by the blocking of the utilization of uracil or erotic acid as precursors of … to uridine (10).

Reversal of 5-FU inhibition by orotic acid suggests the hypothesis that the inhibition is related in some way to suppression of nucleic acid metabolism.
