Normally, the enzyme, Thymidylate Synthase and the vitamin would NOT be linked together permanently This type of inhibition is called “ suicide-based enzyme inhibition ” because the inhibitor participates in the reaction causing the enzyme to react with the compound producing a compound that inactivates the enzyme itself .Fluorouracil Pathway: Fluorouracil Pathway Suicide inhibition because Flurouracil does not directly inhibit enzyme.Methotrexate: Methotrexate Competitive inhibitor of Dihydrofolate Reductase Used in, Acute lymphoblastic leukemia Osteosarcoma in children Solid tumor treatment Breast, head, neck, ovary, and bladder Prevents regeneration of tetrahydrofolate and removes activity of the active forms of folateLeucovorin Rescue Strategy in Methotrexate Chemotherapy: Leucovorin Rescue Strategy in Methotrexate Chemotherapy Patients given sufficient methotrexate that if were not followed by Leucovorin (N 5 -methenyl-THF) would be fatal. All neoplastic cells are killed Patients are “rescued” (6-36 hours) by the Leucovorin (Folate) otherwise would die due to permanent tetrahydrofolate shutdown. Tumor resistance to methotrexate can occur in patients who have “gene amplification” of dihydrofolate reductase (in tumor cells) More dihydrofolate reductase is produced by more than the normal active genes usually present in normal cells.Purine Biosynthesis: Purine Biosynthesis IMP (Inosine Monophosphate) Precursor to GMP and AMP Utilizes (Substrates) Glycine Glutamine ATP Folate (N 10 -formyl-THF) Aspartate CO 2 PRPP amidotransferase is rate limiting Inhibited by AMP and GMPIMP Pathway: IMP PathwayIMP to AMP and GMP: IMP to AMP and GMP Glutamine, NAD, ATP used in GMP production Aspartate, GTP used AMP productionAMP and GMP Pathway: AMP and GMP PathwayNucleotide Pyrimidine Catabolism: Nucleotide Pyrimidine Catabolism Degradation of pyrimidine metabolites UMP, CMP, TMP End products are acetyl-CoA and Propionyl-CoA Ribose sugar component may be converted to ribose-5-phosphate which is a substrate for PRPP Synthetase Ribose sugar component may be further catabolized in HMP pathwayPyrimidine Catabolic Pathway: Pyrimidine Catabolic PathwayPurine Catabolism: Purine CatabolismRegulation of Nucleotide Metabolism: Regulation of Nucleotide Metabolism Pyrimidine Regulation Primary regulatory step is Carbamoyl Phosphate via Carbamoyl Phosphate Synthetase II Purine RegulationAction of Allopurinol: Action of Allopurinol Allopurinol is purine base analog Three mechanisms Allopurinol is oxidized to alloxanthine by xanthine dehydrogenase Then Allopurinol and alloxanthine are inhibitors of xanthine dehydrogenase This inhibition decreases urate formation Then concentrations of Allopurinol and alloxanthine increase but do not precipitate as urate does. Allopurinol and alloxanthine are excreted into the urineAction of Allopurinol:Pathway: Action of Allopurinol:PathwayBiosythesis of Nucleotide Coenzymes: Biosythesis of Nucleotide Coenzymes CoA OTC is pantothenate Uses ATP, CTP, CysteineCoenzyme A Pathway: Coenzyme A PathwayFMN and FAD: FMN and FAD OTC is riboflavin Consumes ATP You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
