Abstract The reaction of xanthosine 5'-phosphate aminase (xanthosine-5'-phosphate:ammonia ligase (AMP), EC 6.3.4.1) with hydroxylamine, xanthosine 5'-phosphate, and adenosine triphosphate results in the formation of 1 mole each of adenosine 5'-phosphate and a derivative of XMP, presumably 2-hydroxylamino-IMP, per mole of aminase. The derivative is enzyme-bound, but can be released by extraction with trichloracetic acid. The compound is a powerful inhibitor of the aminase. These observations… Expand
