Diseases • Gout o Precipitation of sodium urate in joints and kidneys due to exceeding serum urate solubility, inflammation and erosion of joints when WBC engulf crystals and rupture o Abdormal / unresponsive PRPP synthetase to feedback inhibition = ↑ purines o Partial deficiency of HGPRT = ↑ PRPP = ↑ purines o Treatment: allopurinol (block urate production) or colchicines – anti-inflammatory, inhibits leukocyte movement • Lesch-Nyhan syndrome o Hereditary X-linked recessive, deficiency of HGPRT (inactive or unstable) = ↑ purine synthesis o Hyperuricemia, gout, urinary tract stones, neurologic symptoms o Treament: allopurinol (↓ urate production) • Von Gierke’s disease o G6PD deficiency --. ↑ Ribose phosphates = ↑ PRPP = ↑ purine synthesis

Immunodeficiency disorders o ADA deficiency  ↑ deoxyadenosine and adenosine = ↑ dATP = ↓ ribonucleotide reductase = ↓ DNA synthesis = ↓ lymphocytes  Lymphocyte defect, severe combined immunodeficiency = recurrent, chronic infections, fatal by 18 mo.


Treatment: bone marrow transplant, enzyme replacement, gene therapy Purine nucleoside phosphorylase deficiency  ↑ dGTP = ↓ ribonucleotide reductase to a lesser degree  T-cell impairment = recurrent / chronic infections

Treament: prevent exposure to diseases
