Carrier-free 8-azidoadenosine 5'-[gamma-32P]triphosphate.


PMID 2824239

Abstract

We found 8-azidoadenosine 5'-diphosphate to be a phosphoryl acceptor in the enzymatic conversion of 1,3-diphosphoglyceric acid to 3-phosphoglycerate. This has allowed us to synthesize in a single-step procedure carrier-free 8-azidoadenosine 5'-[gamma-32P]triphosphate, requiring no further purification of the end product. The synthesized 8-azidoadenosine 5'-[gamma-32P]triphosphate has been characterized and shown to meet all the criteria for a specific photoreactive ATP analogue.
