6MP purinethol



What do you know about purinethol?


Elaine writes:

In biochemistry, purines and pyrimdines make up DNA. In other words, in order for our cells (intestinal cells to replace themselves as well as white blood cell to protect us, there is a need for purines and pyrimidines. They make up the 4 backbones of DNA. I think these immune suppressors like 6MP are attached to an atom which makes them "counterfeit" and fools all cells into trying to pick up the needed purines in order to multiply and by so doing stops them from replicating. That means that the immune system cannot supply white blood cells like macrophages, lymphocytes and plasma cells that make antibodies. That would stop the body's autoimmune reaction but would have other effects.
