Furthermore, significant decrease in the expression level was also observed in a variety of proteins involved in ribosome processing (laminin receptor-like protein LAMRL5 (LAMR1P15)), membrane trafficking (copine-1 (CPNE1)), immune response (MHC Class I antigen (HLA-A)), DNA methylation (S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase (AHCY)), transcription and DNA repair (nuclear factor IV (XRCC5)), nucleotide metabolism (3'(2'),5-'bisphosphate nucleotidase 1 (BPNT1)) as well as apoptosis and cell cycle (PDCD6IP).
Other forms of 5prime nucleotidase be present in the cytoplasm and lysosomes and can be illustrious from ecto-NT5 by their substrate affinities, requirement for divalent magnesium ion, activation by ATP, and inhibition by inorganic phosphate[8].
I suggest MICRONUCLEATE, NUCLEOSIDASE and NUCLEOTIDASE, all in Websters 3d New International.

Under normal circumstances, several feedback loops act to reduce the production of uric acid, including inhibition of AMP deaminase by inorganic phosphate, and inhibition of 5' nucleotidase by elevated concentrations of ATP.
There's albumin and globulin and aspartate transaminase, and 5' nucleotidase, gamma glutamyl transpeptidase and lactate dehydrogenase, and alanine transaminases.
