Fig. 3.16. Control of the biosynthesis of the purine nucleotides in Bacillus subtilis. 1. Reaction catalysed by PRPP amidinotransferase. 2. Reaction catalysed by IMP dehydrogenase. 3. Reaction catalysed by adenylosuccinate synthase. AMP = Adenosine monophosphate. IMP = Inosine monophosphate XMP = Xanthine monophosphate. GMP = Guanosine monophosphate sine (Shibai et al. 1978) which is produced from auxotrophic strains of Bacillus subtilis The control of the production of purine nucleotides is shown in Fig. 3.16. The main sites of control shown in Fig. 3.16 are:

-• Feedback repression

Discover How To Become Your Own Brew Master, With Brew Your Own Beer. It takes more than a recipe to make a great beer. Just using the right ingredients doesn't mean your beer will taste like it was meant to. Most of the time it’s the way a beer is made and served that makes it either an exceptional beer or one that gets dumped into the nearest flower pot.
