Although the main physiological function of purine degradation might lie in the remobilization of nitrogen resources, it has also emerged that catabolic intermediates, the ureides allantoin and allantoate, are likely to be involved in protecting plants against abiotic stress. (Wash.). nat. The average value of V̊O2peak was 40.92 (SD = 4.087) ml/kg/min, the average anaerobic capacity Ppeak was 7.57 (SD = 0.380) Watt/kg. Uricase activity was inhibited strongly by xanthine, which was competitive with respect to uric acid (Ki = 10 microM). Subjects consumed a control drink and a phytic acid drink with purine-rich food, and serum and urine uric acid levels were measured for 360 min after purine loading. Therefore, we consider the training-induced adaptations in master athletes to be beneficial and significant. : Gout and Hyperuricemia. : Partial deficiency of purine nucleoside Phosphorylase studies of pruine and pyrimidine metabolism.

The amino-terminal end of the purified protein was sequenced, and the resulting sequence was not found in any available data bases, confirming the novelty of the protein. Our results suggest that guanosine is an intermediate in the catabolism of guanine nucleotides and that it is re-utilised for nucleotide synthesis by ‘salvage’ reactions. Ischii, K., Green, H.: Lethality of adenosine for cultured mammalian cells by interference with pyrimidine biosynthesis.

Xanthine dehydrogenase was able to use APAD+ as an electron acceptor for xanthine oxidation, with a Km at pH 7.5 of 21.2 ± 2.5 μm and Vmax the same as that obtained with NAD+.

Thus, if more adenosine nucleotides exist than guanosine nucleotides, the synthesis of AMP slows down until the purine nucleotides balance. In the leaves of A62-1, the level was higher in the developing leaves than lower mature leaves. In agriculture, urea is intensively used as a nitrogen fertilizer. Both products gave mixed inhibition with respect to both substrates. The workload resulted in significant changes in the level of ABB and LA after both of the exercise stress tests (p < 0.001). : 5′-nucleotidase: an ecto-enzyme of frog skeletal muscle.

Foltinova, I., Kuzela, S.: Effect of nucleosides on the synthesis of nucleic acids and proteins in Ehrlich ascites carcinoma cells. Of the precursors for the intermediates in de novo purine biosynthesis, [(14)C]formate, [2-(14)C]glycine and [2-(14)C]5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxyamide ribonucleoside were metabolised to purine nucleotides and were incorporated into nucleic acids. In the so-called ureide pathway, nitrogen is released as ammonia from allantoate through a series of reactions starting with allantoate amidohydrolase (AAH), a manganese-dependent enzyme found in plants and bacteria.

The activity was shown to be associated with peroxisomes by fractionation of a crude extract on a sucrose density gradient. Extracts of Glycine max and Zea mays leaves catalysed the release of 14CO2 from [14C] urea with multiple pH maxima (5.5 and 9.0 for G. max; 5.5, 7.5 and 8.8 for Z. mays). Reduction of APAD+ by NADH was also catalyzed by xanthine dehydrogenase with a Km of 102 ± 15 μm; Vmax was approximately 2.5 times that for the xanthine-dependent reaction, and was independent of pH between 6 and 9.
