(2'-deoxy)adenosine + H2O => (2'-deoxy)inosine + NH3 [ADA] (R-HSA-74241) [Homo sapiens]


Cytosolic adenosine deaminase (ADA) catalyzes the hydrolysis of 2'deoxyadenosine and adenosine to yield deoxyinosine and inosine, respectively, plus ammonia (Akeson et al. 1988). Unpublished crystallographic data (PDB 3IAR) indicate that the human enzyme is a monomer.
