Family

Adenine phosphoribosyl transferase (IPR005764)

Short name: Ade_phspho_trans

Family relationships

None.

Description

Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase (APRTase, EC:2.4.2.7) is a widely distributed enzyme, and its deficiency in humans causes the accumulation of 2,8-dihydroxyadenine. It is the sole catalyst for adenine recycling in most eukaryotes. AMP + diphosphate = adenine + 5-phospho-alpha-D-ribose 1-diphosphate
