HGPRT

An enzyme which plays an significant role in the making of ATP and GTP from guanine -- the only way guanine, adenine, or another purine molecules are able to become part of nucleic acids. Biologists learn gene action via the incorporation of modified nitrogenous bases into DNA by manipulating the metabolic role which this enzyme plays. Similarly, the enzyme thymidine kinase is used for the same purpose by biologists because it fills the same significant and unique role for the pyrimidines (thymine, cytosine, uracil, etc.).
