An inherited deficiency of uridine-5'-monophosphate synthase has recently been discovered in dairy cattle. The possibility was explored that this deficiency might be detected by low amounts of erythroycte 3-N-ribosyluric acid since it is synthesized by uridine monophosphate synthase. Ribosyluric acid was lower in six dairy cows with the deficiency compared to six controls, paired on the basis of age, stage of lactation, and diet (0.66 against 1.38 micro mol/ml).
