The deamination of cyclaradine corresponding to a carbocyclic analogue of ara-A having anti-HSV activity by adenosine deaminase was examined under various pressure. The deamination of (+)- and (±)-cyclaradine was remarkably facilitated by high pressure, and the rate was increased with increasing of pressure. However, (-)-cyclaradine was not deaminated even under high pressure.
