Uridine introduction

  Uridine is one of 5 nucleosides that make up a nucleic acid. It is an important component of RNA and plays a big role in central nervous system function.

  In adults, uridine is synthesized in the liver as uridine monophosphate and secreted as UMP in the blood. Uridine can also be found as uridine triphosphate or uridine-5′-monophosphate.

  It is found in many types of plants and is also present in breast milk.

  Uridine is also involved in the glycolysis pathway.
