SAH is suitable for use:
  • to investigate whether AdoHcy competes with AdoMet in the down-regulation of reporter activity of LUC reporter gene
  • as a reagent to study the abundance patterns of SAH and its correlation with vertebrate metamorphosis
  • in the optimization of the protein (lysine K) methyltransferase SET7/9 activity assay
  • in the fluorescence polarization (FP) assay during dengue virus methyltransferase activity measurement
  • as a standard for the measurement of SAH from blood samples by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with fluorimetric detection method

Ações bioquímicas/fisiológicas

S-(5′-Adenosyl)-L-homocysteine (AdoHcy/SAH) is a component of intracellular homocysteine stress. AdoHcy is a competitive inhibitor (versus AdoMet) of DNA methyltransferases (S-adenosyl-L-methionine (AdoMet)-dependent methyltransferases) involved in epigenetics. Consequently, AdoHcy is used in a variety of studies on epigenetics in hyperhomocysteinemic states. AdoHcy is metabolized by S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase (AHCY). AdoHcy is the product of enzymatic transmethylation reactions involving S-Adenosylmethionine (SAM). It is reconverted to SAM by its cleavage into adenosine and L-homocysteine, a substrate of thetin-homocysteine S-methyltransferase. The concentration alterations of SAM and SAH in plasma serve as predictors of cellular methylation potential and metabolic alterations. Methylation capacity indicates specific genetic polymorphisms and/or nutritional deficiencies. Methylation is important in epigenetics, reprogramming, and cancer.

The relative changes in plasma and intracellular concentrations of S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) and S-adenosylhomocysteine (SAH) may be important predictors of cellular methylation potential and metabolic alterations associated with specific genetic polymorphisms and/or nutritional deficiencies. Because these metabolites are present in nanomolar

Available methods for the determination of nanomolar concentrations of S:-adenosylmethionine (SAM) and S:-adenosylhomocysteine (SAH) in plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) are time-consuming. We wished to develop a method for their rapid and simultaneous measurement. We used tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS)

Flavivirus NS5 is the most conserved protein amongst the flavivirus proteins and is an essential enzyme for viral mRNA capping and replication. It encodes a methyl-transferase (MTase) domain at its N-terminal region which carries out sequential N7 and 2'-O methylation

Elevated plasma homocysteine is associated with an increased risk of intravascular thrombosis. Platelet aggregation and thrombosis are inhibited by prostacyclin produced by the vascular endothelium. Our aim was to investigate whether homocysteine and related metabolites inhibit endothelial prostacyclin production. We


Histone Modification and Chromatin Remodeling | Epigenetics

Epigenetic modifications are thought to occur through two key interconnected processes—DNA methylation and the covalent modification of histones.
