Xanthine oxidoreductase (XOR) is part of a group of enzymes known as the molybdenum iron-sulfur flavin hydroxylases; it is an evolutionarily conserved housekeeping enzyme, with a principal role in purine catabolism by catalyzing the two last steps in purine catabolism, forming uric acid from hypoxanthine and xanthine.
The enzyme xanthine oxidoreductase (XOR) has a wide distribution throughout living organisms and is highly conserved in prokaryotic, plant, and animal species (reviewed in [1]).
Xanthine Oxidoreductase (XOR) is a rate-limiting enzyme of the purine degradation pathway, oxidizing hypoxanthine into xanthine and xanthine into uric acid.
Both xanthine oxidase and xanthine dehydrogenase, collectively called xanthine oxidoreductase, is known as the rate-limiting enzyme in purine and pyrimidine catabolism.
