Cancer patients excrete in their urine increased amounts of modified purines and pyrimidines. These modified mucleosides are primary constituents of RNA and are synthesized at the macromolecular level. When RNA is catabolized, most of these modified nucleosides cannot be reutilized; consequently, they are excreted. Due to their increased urinary excretion in conjunction with altered RNA turnover in carcinogenesis, they have been proposed as tumour markers. We developed both reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatographic and capillary electrophoretic approaches to determine normal and modified nucleosides in urine...

1. The transport of pyrimidine mucleosides into cells of Escherichis coli has been investigated in mutant strains which cannot metabolize these nucleosides. Such cells transport and concentrate purimidine mucleosides several hindredfold. 2. The transport is inhibited by energy poisons and by sulfhydryl reagents. 3. Pyrimidine mucleosides compete mutually for transport. Adenosine is also a strong competitor while guanosine and inosine are weak competitors. 4. The rate of pyrimidine mucleoside transport is shown to be under control of the cytR and deoR gene products, which are also known to regulate the synthesis of nucleoside-catabolizing enzymes...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
