- purine nucleoside + phosphate purine + alpha-D-ribose 1-phosphate
This enzyme belongs to the family of glycosyltransferases, specifically the pentosyltransferases. The systematic name of this enzyme class is purine-nucleoside:phosphate ribosyltransferase. Other names in common use include inosine phosphorylase, PNPase, PUNPI, PUNPII, inosine-guanosine phosphorylase, nucleotide phosphatase, purine deoxynucleoside phosphorylase, purine deoxyribonucleoside phosphorylase, purine nucleoside phosphorylase, and purine ribonucleoside phosphorylase. This enzyme participates in 3 metabolic pathways: purine metabolism, pyrimidine metabolism, and nicotinate and nicotinamide metabolism.
As of late 2007, 85 structures have been solved for this class of enzymes, with PDB accession codes 1A69, 1A9O, 1A9P, 1A9Q, 1A9R, 1A9S, 1A9T, 1B8N, 1B8O, 1ECP, 1FXU, 1G2O, 1I80, 1K9S, 1LV8, 1LVU, 1M73, 1N3I, 1NW4, 1OTX, 1OTY, 1OU4, 1OUM, 1OV6, 1OVG, 1PBN, 1PF7, 1PK7, 1PK9, 1PKE, 1PR0, 1PR1, 1PR2, 1PR4, 1PR5, 1PR6, 1PW7, 1PWY, 1Q1G, 1QE5, 1RCT, 1RFG, 1RR6, 1RSZ, 1RT9, 1TCU, 1TCV, 1TD1, 1ULA, 1ULB, 1V2H, 1V3Q, 1V41, 1V45, 1V48, 1VFN, 1VHJ, 1VHW, 1VMK, 1XE3, 1YQQ, 1YRY, 1Z33, 1Z34, 1Z35, 1Z36, 1Z37, 1Z38, 1Z39, 2A0W, 2A0X, 2A0Y, 2AC7, 2AI1, 2AI2, 2AI3, 2B94, 2BSX, 2I4T, 2ISC, 2OC4, 2OC9, 2ON6, 3PNP, and 4PNP.
