(E)-5',6'-didehydro-6'-deoxy-6'-fluorohomoadenosine: a substrate that measures the hydrolytic activity of S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase.


(E)-5',6'-Didehydro-6'-deoxy-6'-fluorohomoadenosine (EDDFHA), which is a poor substrate for the oxidative activity of S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine (AdoHcy) hydrolase and thus a poor mechanism-based inhibitor was shown to be a good substrate for the hydrolytic activity of this enzyme. Incubation of EDDFHA with AdoHcy hydrolase (NAD+ form) produces a large molar… (More)
