For genome manipulation, the chromosome araR of B. subtilis 168 was been previously associated with defective purine salvage resulting from impaired synthesis of guanine nucle-otides from adenine. As a result, this pathway has been thoroughly investigated over the last twenty years. Additionally, as part of a broader discussion on substrate analogue types of inhibitors, special attention is paid to iminoribitol derivatives, serving as transition state analogues of nucleoside-processing enzymes and comprising the most potent inhibitors reported for purine salvage enzymes. <> The salvage pathways are diverse in different organism in contrast to the de-novo purine nucleotide synthetic pathway which is virtually identical in all cells. VI.

Why are they important? Although not by directly intervening in the process of purine recovery, the subversive substrate approach might deliver antiprotozoal compounds that rely on salvage enzymes for their activity. PNP activity has been reported to a much lesser extent in heart and muscle. G.
