Cordycepin (75808-67-2, 73-03-0)
Cordycepin, or 3'-deoxyadenosine, is a derivative of the nucleoside adenosine, differing from the latter by the absence of the hydroxy group in the 3' position of its ribose part. It was initially extracted from the fungus Cordyceps militaris, but is now produced synthetically. Because cordycepin is similar to adenosine, some enzymes cannot discriminate between the two.
