Uricase Converts Uric Acid image details

This image is from “Recent developments in our understanding of the renal basis of hyperuricemia and the development of novel antihyperuricemic therapeutics” with the caption:

Action of uricase to catabolize uric acid to allantoin. Uricase (urate oxidase) gene expression and the depicted uricase reaction are lacking in humans, as discussed in the text. PEGylated recombinant uricase preparations are now under investigation for treatment of refractory hyperuricemia in gout, and have the potential to rapidly reduce (“de-bulk”) tophus burden.

Medical Disclaimer: The pupose of GoutPal is to provide jargon-free explanations of medical gout-related terms and procedures. Because gout sufferers need to know what questions to ask their doctor. Also, you need to understand what your doctor tells you. So this website explains gout science. But it is definitely NOT a substitute for medical advice.

Information on this website is provided by a fellow gout sufferer (Keith Taylor) with an accountant's precision for accurate data. But no medical qualifications. So you must seek professional medical advice about gout and any other health matters.
