Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -51.489998Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

This is one of the two reactions catalyzed by nucleoside:oxygen 5'-oxidoreductase (H2O2-forming), EC

(1) adenosine + oxygen → 5'-dehydroadenosine + hydrogen peroxide

(2) 5'-dehydroadenosine + oxygen + H2O → adenin-9-yl riburonosate + hydrogen peroxide + H+

5'-dehydro nucleosides are released from the enzyme after the completion of the first reaction, and serve as substrates for the second reaction.

The overall reaction is:

adenosine + 2 oxygen + H2O → adenin-9-yl riburonosate + 2 hydrogen peroxide + H+
