case not <OC:Halobacteria>
Protein name
RecName: Full=Hypoxanthine/guanine phosphoribosyltransferase;
Gene name
else case <OC:Halobacteria>
Protein name
RecName: Full=HGPRTase-like protein;
end case

Comments [?]

case not <OC:Halobacteria>
Function Catalyzes a salvage reaction resulting in the formation of IMP that is energically less costly than de novo synthesis.
Catalytic activity IMP + diphosphate = hypoxanthine + 5-phospho-alpha-D-ribose 1-diphosphate.
GMP + diphosphate = guanine + 5-phospho-alpha-D-ribose 1-diphosphate.
Pathway Purine metabolism; IMP biosynthesis via salvage pathway; IMP from hypoxanthine: step 1/1.
Subunit Homodimer.
Subcellular location Cytoplasm.
else case <OC:Halobacteria>
Function May catalyze a purine salvage reaction, the substrate is unknown.
end case
Similarity Belongs to the purine/pyrimidine phosphoribosyltransferase family. Archaeal HPRT subfamily.

Comments Halobacteria are known to have both hypoxanthine/guanine and adenine phosphoribosyltransferase activities; therefore we do not know what is the substrate for this enzyme is in Halobacteria.
