Product Name 5-Fluoroorotic Acid

5-Fluoroorotic Acid is a yeast with an active URA3 gene (Ura+) converts 5-FOA to fluorodeoxyuridine, which is toxic to cells (see the scheme below). Yeast strains carrying a mutation in the URA3 gene grow in the presence of 5-FOA if the media is supplemented with uracil. 5-FOA is frequently used in experiments with Saccharomyces cerevisiae (URA3), Schizosaccharomyces pombe (URA4 and URA5), Candida albicans (URA3), and E. coli (pyrF).
