Xanthine Oxidase Activity in a Gouty Patient with Partial Deficiency of HGPRT

  • A. Carcassi
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series


Xanthine oxidase is an enzyme which is directly uricogenetic, as it catalyzes the aerobic dehydrogenation of hypoxanthine to xanthine and of xanthine to uric acid, these being the final steps in purine metabolism in man. In man, the enzyme is present mainly in the liver and in the jejunal mucosa.
