The role of gene duplication in the patchwork assembly of nucleic acid base salvage pathways

Abstract

.The purine and pyrimidine ribonucleotides are formed de novo in all organisms from amino acids, ribose, carbon dioxide, or synthesized from preformed pufine bases and nucleosides through different salvage pathways (Berens, et al. 1995). Study of the available sequences of the enzymes used in salvage pathways provides evidence of extensive duplication… (More)
