    Conversion of 5-aminoimidazole ribonucleotide (AIR) to 4-carboxyaminoimidazole ribonucleotide (CAIR) in Escherichia coli requires two proteins - PurK and PurE. PurE has recently been shown to be a mutase that catalyzes the unusual rearrangement of N(5)-carboxyaminoimidazole ribonucleotide (N(5)-CAIR), the PurK reaction product, to CAIR. PurEs from higher eukaryotes are homologous to E. coli PurE, but use AIR and CO(2) as substrates to produce CAIR directly.
