A proton nuclear magnetic resonance (1H-NMR) spectrometric method can be used to measure many compounds of purine and pyrimidine metabolism (13), but it has a major disadvantage in that it fails to detect uric acid and 2,8-dihydroxyadenine, which are very useful markers for the diagnosis of APRT deficiency, XDH deficiency, molybdenum cofactor deficiency, PRPPS super-activity, and HGPRT deficiency.
HGPRT catalyzes a biochemical process called purine salvage.
After an initial denaturation for 69s at 95 [degrees], 36 cycles of amplification (93[degrees]C for 55s, 61[degrees]C for 45s, 72 [degrees]C for 40s) for TNF-[alpha] and HGPRT (hypoxanthine-guanine-phosphoribosyltransferase, as a positive control and internal standard) cDNAs were performed followed by a 100-s step for elongation at 72 [degrees].
