Direct generic reaction:
a purine ribonucleoside + phosphate ↔ a purine base + α-D-ribose-1-phosphate (2.4.2.1)

Enzyme Commission Primary Name for 2.4.2.1: purine-nucleoside phosphorylase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms for 2.4.2.1: inosine phosphorylase, PNPase, PUNPI, PUNPII, inosine-guanosine phosphorylase, nucleotide phosphatase, purine deoxynucleoside phosphorylase, purine deoxyribonucleoside phosphorylase, purine nucleoside phosphorylase, purine ribonucleoside phosphorylase

Enzyme Commission Primary Name for 2.4.2.15: guanosine phosphorylase

Enzyme Commission Summary for 2.4.2.1:
Specificity not completely determined. Can also catalyse ribosyltransferase reactions of the type catalysed by EC 2.4.2.5, nucleoside ribosyltransferase.

Enzyme Commission Summary for 2.4.2.15:
This enzyme has been defined based on a single publication of an enzyme from rabbit bone marrow that appears to be highly specific for guanosine and deoxyguanosine [Yamada61]. Most enzymes that are known to catalyze this reaction, such as the human purine nucleoside phosphorylase, can accept other purines as well, and thus were attributed to a specific case of the more general enzyme EC 2.4.2.1, (guanosine + phosphate ↔ guanine + α-D-ribose-1-phosphate).
