S-Adenosylhomocysteine metabolism was studied in cell extracts of streptonigrin-producing Streptomyces flocculus. The major route of metabolism was found to be deamination to form S-inosylhomocysteine. The metabolite was purified by high-performance liquid chromatography and identified by its UV and nuclear magnetic resonance spectra and by its chemical degradation to hypoxanthine.
