The accelerated rates of inosinate biosynthesis lead to the breakdown of much of the excess of inosinate; inosine and hypoxanthine are formed.

The findings of coordinate induction, polarity effects and operator constitutive mutations suggest that the deo cluster is a regulon composed of two tandem operons, deoCA and deoBD (Robertson et al. 1970; Ahmad & Pritchard 1971, 1973). Both are regulated by deoxyribose 5-phosphate derived from deoxyribonucleosides, but deoBD is also induced by purine ribonucleosides. An unlinked regulatory gene (deoR) that controls the entire deo operon has been found and mutations in this gene result in constitutive expression of all four enzymes (Ahmad & Pritchard 1971; Blank & Hoffee 1972).
