Purine nucleoside phosphorylase is an enzyme involved in purine metabolism. PNP metabolizes adenosine into adenine, inosine into hypoxanthine, and guanosine into guanine. Mutations in the PNP gene are responsible for purine nucleoside phosphorylase deficiency.
PUNP, Recombinant (E. coli)
These enzymes are widely used for the synthesis of modified nucleotides (virasol, cladribine, fludarabine) which are efficient antiviral and antitumor drugs.
