    Hypouricemia is defined as a serum urate levels less than 2 mg/dL (119 µmol/L). Primary hypouricemia is caused by disorders of purine metabolism and transport. This laboratory finding is sometimes overlooked and, following two genetic defects, should be considered in differential diagnosis of...

    Gout is caused by high uric acid in the blood that leads to excess uric acid crystallizing in the joints causing swelling and pain. Uric acid is produced from the breakdown of the purine which is released when cells die or introduced from the food we eat. The enzyme that helps in breakdown of...

    A biosensor is developed for the determination of hypoxanthine (Hx) by entrapment of XOD and a mediator, ferrocene or potassium ferrocyanide, (K4Fe(CN)6, into a PPy film during galvanostatic film formation. The optimum conditions for the formation of PPy-XOD-Fe(CN)64- film include 0.4 M pyrrole,...
