XDH Key enzyme in purine degradation. Catalyzes the oxidation of hypoxanthine to xanthine. Catalyzes the oxidation of xanthine to uric acid. Contributes to the generation of reactive oxygen species. Has also low oxidase activity towards aldehydes (in vitro). Belongs to the xanthine dehydrogenase family. Detected in milk (at protein level). Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
