We've all heard about the pathway of purine breakdown, from adenine to xanthine to uric acid.

But WHERE does this occur? Does this occur in the same cell that originally had the DNA? Like in an RBC as its nucleus becomes kypnotic?

If so, then what happens to the urate? Is it just exocytosed free into the blood?

Thanks!Happy-2Happy-2
