Azahypoxanthine Related Compound

The findings corroborate the hypothesis that (aza hypoxanthine) AHX was synthesized from (5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide ribonucleotide) AICAR and that AHX biosynthesis was transcriptionally regulated by AICAR, implying the establishment of a new purine metabolic pathway in L. sordid. And AHX has beneficial effects on plant growth. Also used as a growth stimulator, whereas is a nonspecific cell cycle antineoplastic drug.
