Cell extracts of Clostridium acidiurici, C. cylindrosporum, and C. purinolyticum converted purine, hypoxanthine, 2-hydroxypurine, 6,8-dihydroxypurine, and uric acid into xanthine by the shortest possible route. Adenine was transformed to xanthine only by C. purinolyticum, whereas the other two species formed 6-amino-8-hydroxypurine, which was neither deaminated nor hydroxylated further. 8-Hydroxypurine was formed from purine by all three species. Xanthine dehydrogenase activity was… CONTINUE READING
