Metabolite Identification
Common NameXanthylic acid
DescriptionXanthylic acid is an important metabolic intermediate in the Purine Metabolism, and is a product or substrate of the enzymes Inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase (EC 1.1.1.205), Hypoxanthine phosphoribosyltransferase (EC 2.4.2.8), Xanthine phosphoribosyltransferase (EC 2.4.2.22), 5'-Ribonucleotide phosphohydrolase (EC 3.1.3.5), Ap4A hydrolase (EC 3.6.1.17), Nucleoside-triphosphate diphosphatase (EC 3.6.1.19), Phosphoribosylamine-glycine ligase (EC 6.3.4.1), and glutamine amidotransferase (EC 6.3.5.2). (KEGG) Xanthylic acid can also be used in quantitative measurements of the Inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase enzyme activities in purine metabolism. This measurement is important for optimal thiopurine therapy for children with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL). (PMID: 16725387 ).

Molecular weight:
Not Available
Reactions
Xanthylic acid + Water → Xanthosine + Phosphoric aciddetails
General function:
Involved in hydrolase activity
Specific function:
Pyrophosphatase that hydrolyzes the non-canonical purine nucleotides inosine triphosphate (ITP), deoxyinosine triphosphate (dITP) as well as 2'-deoxy-N-6-hydroxylaminopurine triposphate (dHAPTP) and xanthosine 5'-triphosphate (XTP) to their respective monophosphate derivatives. The enzyme does not distinguish between the deoxy- and ribose forms. Probably excludes non-canonical purines from RNA and DNA precursor pools, thus preventing their incorporation into RNA and DNA and avoiding chromosomal lesions.
