Ribocation transition state capture and rebound in human purine nucleoside phosphorylase.
A ribocation lifetime too short to permit capture by water is established and an enlarged catalytic site permits ribocation formation with relaxed geometric constraints, permitting nucleophilic rebound and N3-inosine isomerization.
The ‘chemistry’ of research collaboration
Abstract This paper examines the process of research collaboration with other scientists based solely upon the experiences of the author: initiation of cooperation; agreement on purpose and
Kinetics of Phosphorolysis of 3-(β-d-Ribofuranosyl)Adenine and 3-(β-d-Ribofuranosyl)Hypoxanthine, Non-Conventional Substrates of Purine-Nucleoside Phosphorylase
The properties of two non-conventional substrates of the calf-spleen and Escherichia coli purine nucleoside phosphorylases (PNP), 3-(β-d-ribofuranosyl)adenine (RibfAde) and

The purine‐2‐deoxyribonucleosidase from Crithidia luculiae
Crude extracts of Crithidia luciliae catalysed a deoxyribosyl transfer from purine deoxynucleosides to free purine bases. Fractionation of a 0—80% (NH4)2SO4 fraction from C. luciliae on
Adenylates: Bound and unbound
An evaluation is made of the use of adenylate analogs as spatial, dimensional, and fluorescent probes of enzyme‐coenzyme binding sites.
3 Purine, Purine Nucleoside, and Purine Nucleotide Aminohydrolases
The method utilizing the direct absorption of AMP aminohydrolase from a crude rabbit muscle extract with cellulose phosphate and its consequent elution provides a one-step purification of ultracentrifugal and electrophoretically homogeneous enzyme in high yields.
