Adenosine deaminase is a purine catabolic enzyme ubiquitous in mammalian tissue which catalyzes deamination of both adenosine and 2'-deoxyadenosine to inosine and 2'-deoxyinosine respectively.
Adenosine deaminase is a purine catabolic enzyme which catalyzes the deamination of adenosine and 2′-deoxyadenosine with approximately equal specificity. It is ubiquitous in mammalian tissue, and deficiency in adenosine deaminase has been associated with severe combined immunodeficiency disease.
