PRPP Synthetase Catalyzes synthesis of 5-phosphoribosyl-1-pryophosphate (PRPP) from ribose 5-phosphate
Glutamine PRPP Amidotransferase Catalyzes synthesis of 5-phosphoribosylamine from PRPP (nitrogen from glutamine)
IMP branches to ___ or ___ by two steps. AMP or GMP
IMP, GMP, and XMP negative feedback at same site on ___. glutamine PRPP amidotransferase
AMP negative feedback at a different site on ___. glutamine PRPP amidotransferase (same enzyme, different site)

Purine ribonucleotides act as ___ for PRPP synthetase and glutamine PRPP amidotransferase. allosteric regulators
Glucose-6-Phosphatase Deficiency (GSD Type I, Von Gierke’s Dsiease) Increased flux through pentose phosphate pathway and adenine nucleotide pool degradation
Increased flux through pentose phosphate pathway yields: Increased ribose-5-phosphate, PRPP, IMP/GMP/AMP, and uric acid production
Uric acid overproduction causes ___. gout
