Inactivation of S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine hydrolase with novel 5'-thioadenosine derivatives. Antiviral effects.


Synthesis of 5'-S-vinyl-5'-thioadenosine 5, 5'-S-ethynyl-5'-thioadenosine 7 and 5'-S-cyano-5'-thioadenosine 9 is described. Incubation of AdoHcy hydrolase with 5, 7 and 9 resulted in time- and concentration-dependent inactivation of the enzyme and partial depletion of its NAD(+) content. From these results and characterisation of metabolites released during… (More)
