Stoffwechsel der Purine und Pyrimidine

  • G. Löffler
Part of the Springer-Lehrbuch book series (SLB)

Zusammenfassung

Purine und Pyrimidine haben als Bausteine von Coenzymen wichtige Aufgaben, darüber hinaus dienen sie in Form ihrer zugehörigen Nucleinsäuren der Informationsspeicherung und -weitergabe in biologischen Systemen. Bei der Biosynthese der Purin- und Pyrimidinbasen dienen einfache Bausteine als Substrate, wobei häufig die Form der reaktionsfreudigeren Nucleotide als Zwischenprodukte benutzt wird.
