Abstract

SUMMARY: utilized the purines hypoxanthine, xanthine and uric acid as sole nitrogen sources. Allantoin and urea supported relatively more growth. The methylated purines caffeine and theobromine were not utilized. Uric acid, allantoic acid, glyoxylic acid and ammonia were detected in culture filtrates. Xanthine dehydrogenase, uricase, allantoinase, allantoicase and urease were present in cell homogenates and cell-free extracts. Uric acid was degraded to allantoic acid via allantoin.
