The liver is one of the most important organs where purine bases will be accumulated during catabolic processes and reutilized. There exists a lot of information on preparing the different enzymes of the purine-phosphoribosyltransferase of cow and pigeon livers (1) or microorganism but there is less information about the localisation of these enzymes within cell organells. We therefore investigated rat liver organells with regard to their purine-phosphoribosyltransferase activities.
