MetaCyc Enzyme: xanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase

Gene: gpt Accession Numbers: EG10414 (MetaCyc), b0238, ECK0239

Synonyms: glyD, gpp, gxu

Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655

Subunit composition of xanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase = [Gpt]4

Summary:
Xanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase is a purine salvage enzyme which converts either xanthine or guanine to XMP or GMP, respectively. It can also act on hypoxanthine, although guanine appears to be the preferred substrate [Liu83, Deo85].

Based on the native molecular weight obtained by gel filtration, the enzyme was originally thought to be a trimer in solution [Liu83], but was later found to be a homotetramer [Vos96, Vos97].

Crystal structures of the free, substrate- and product-bound forms of the enzyme have been solved, and a reaction mechanism has been proposed [Vos97, Vos98].

A gpt mutant is unable to grow on xanthine, but can still grow on guanine at a lower growth rate due to the presence of a second guanine phosphoribosyltransferase activity [Holden76]. An hpt gpt double mutant is extremely sensitive to inhibition by adenine [Levine81a] due to the role of guanine phosphoribosyltransferase in converting free guanine to GMP when the cell is depleted for guanine nucleotides [Levine82].

The gpt gene has been used as a selectable marker for introduction of DNA into mammalian cell lines [Mulligan81].

The amino acid sequence of E. coli Gpt shares only 23% identity with E. coli Hpt, despite their common function [Guddat02]. This enzyme is one of three E. coli phosphoribosyltransferases (PRTases) that participate in purine salvage, Gpt, Hpt and Apt. They are classified as type I PRTases based on a conserved 5-phospho-α-D-ribosyl-1-pyrophosphate binding-site motif [Vos98].
