Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase is one of the purine salvage enzymes which play an important role in maintaining nucleotide pool balance in E. coli.

Enzyme activity is induced by growth on purines, amethopterin, and thymine and is higher in stationary phase cultures. The enzyme is subject to regulation by both repression (by uncyclized nucleoside 5'-phosphates) and end product inhibition [HochstadtOzer71]. Adenine phosphoribosyltransferase is cytoplasmic [Page78], but can be found associated with isolated membrane vesicles [HochstadtOzer71a].
