Adenosine nucleotides can be synthesized de novo. In that route AMP (AMP) is synthesized via IMP (IMP) and adenylo-succinate , which is converted to AMP by the action of adenylosuccinate lyase (see superpathway of adenosine nucleotides de novo biosynthesis II). Note that the free base adenine or the ribonucleoside adenosine are not produced via the de novo pathway.
Many organisms can also recycle adenosine nucleotides by a combination of degradation and salvage pathways. The degradation pathways are responsible for the conversion of the nucleotides to the nucleoside (adenosine) and free base form (adenine), and further degradation to compounds that can be catabolized to basic building blocks (for example, see adenosine nucleotides degradation II).
The pathway described here is found in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. In it the purine nucleoside is first hydrolyzed to ribose and an adenine base by nucleoside hydrolases. The bases are then converted to the mononucleotide form AMP by adenine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase, which utilizes 5-phospho-α-D-ribose 1-diphosphate.
