Manufacturer: United States Biological Corporation F505010G
Molecular Formula C5H3FN2O4.H2O, Molecular Biology Grade, Molecular Weight 192.1, Synonyms: FOA, 5-FOA, 5-Fluoroorotate, 5-fluoro-4-pyrimidinecarboxylic acid, 5-fluoro-1,2,3,6-tetrahydro-2,6-dioxo-(9CI), 1,2,3,6-tetrahydro-2,6-dioxo-5-fluoro-4-pyrimidinecarboxylic acid, 2,6-Dihydroxy-5-fluoropyrimidine-4-carboxylic acid, 5-Fluorouracil-4-carboxylic acid. Useful in the identification and selection of the strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae that contain the mutant ura3- gene. 5-FOA is toxic to yeast cells that can synthesize the enzyme orotidine-5’-phosphate decarboxylase and are therefore unable to grow on 5-FOA-containing media.
