Enzyme Commission Primary Name for 2.4.2.15: guanosine phosphorylase

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): 0.730011 Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Summary:
This is a specific case of the non-specific reaction catalyzed by purine-nucleoside phosphorylase a purine ribonucleoside + phosphate ↔ a purine base + α-D-ribose-1-phosphate.

Even though a different EC reaction (EC 2.4.2.15) describes this specific reaction, the E. coli enzyme has been associated with this reaction, since EC 2.4.2.15 was defined for a much more specific rabbit bone marrow enzyme [Yamada61].

Enzyme Commission Summary for 2.4.2.1:
Specificity not completely determined. Can also catalyse ribosyltransferase reactions of the type catalysed by EC 2.4.2.5, nucleoside ribosyltransferase.

Enzyme Commission Summary for 2.4.2.15:
This enzyme has been defined based on a single publication of an enzyme from rabbit bone marrow that appears to be highly specific for guanosine and deoxyguanosine [Yamada61]. Most enzymes that are known to catalyze this reaction, such as the human purine nucleoside phosphorylase, can accept other purines as well, and thus were attributed to a specific case of the more general enzyme EC 2.4.2.1, (guanosine + phosphate ↔ guanine + α-D-ribose-1-phosphate).
