Purine Nucleoside Metabolism in Escherichia Coli

  • Bjarne Jochimsen
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 41A)


This manuscript will mainly deal with purine nucleoside metabolism, and I would like to stress that the organism studied is the enteric bacterium Escherichia coli with its natural habitat:the human rectum.

    Assays, purine nucleoside kinase assays were made by mixing equal volumes of fraction and reaction mixture: (0,14 M Tris-Cl s 7.8 (6.5),0,o7 M MgC1, 0,07 M KC1, 2mM ATP and 1mM C-(U)-nucleoside (50.0000 cpm/l). Reaction mixture plus enzyme was incubated at 37 C for 30) minutes and 15/ul samples were taken and spotted on poly-ethylene-ifiine coated plastic sheets. Plates were developed with water, and start spots containing nucleotides were cut out, and counted.Google Scholar
