Differences in uricogenic effects of dietary purine bases, nucleosides and nucleotides in rats


, : Differences in uricogenic effects of dietary purine bases, nucleosides and nucleotides in rats. Journal of Nutrition 118(6): 780-786

The uricogenic effects of dietary free purines (adenine, guanine, hypoxanthine and xanthine), their nucleosides (adenosine, guanosine and inosine) and nucleotides (adenosine monophosphate, guanosine monophosphate and inosine monophosphate) were studied in rats. Casein-based diets (20% protein) supplemented with 30 mmol/kg diet of each of the free purine base, nucleoside or nucleotide were fed to male Sprague-Dawley rats (100 .+-. 5 g) for 14 d. Addition of adenine resulted in less weight gain than in controls, greater kidney weight, greater urine volume and higher levels of blood urea nitrogen, serum uric acid, creatinine and allantoin but lower urinary levels of allantoin, uric acid and creatinine. The adenine diet also caused nephropathy characterized by nephromegaly and deposition of crystals. A microscopic examination of the kidneys revealed deposition of crystals mainly in the lumen of convoluted tubules of the cortex. Feeding of diets containing other purine bases, nucleosides and nucleotides had no adverse effects on kidneys weight or structure, urine volume, serum uric acid or creatinine. Urinary allantoin excretion, however, was greater in rats fed hypoxanthine, xanthine, nucleoside and nucleotide diets than in control rats. Adenine produced adverse effects only when fed in the free form and not when fed as the nucleoside or nucleotide, suggesting a metabolic significance for free adenine in predicting hyperuricemic effects of foods.
