Chemical Information
NameAdenosine phosphosulfate
DescriptionAdenosine phosphosulfate, also known as adenylylsulfate or adenosine sulfatophosphate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as purine ribonucleoside monophosphates. These are nucleotides consisting of a purine base linked to a ribose to which one monophosphate group is attached. Adenosine phosphosulfate is a strong basic compound (based on its pKa). Adenosine phosphosulfate exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. Within humans, adenosine phosphosulfate participates in a number of enzymatic reactions. In particular, adenosine phosphosulfate can be biosynthesized from sulfate through the action of the enzyme bifunctional 3'-phosphoadenosine 5'-phosphosulfate synthase 2. In addition, adenosine phosphosulfate can be converted into phosphoadenosine phosphosulfate; which is catalyzed by the enzyme bifunctional 3'-phosphoadenosine 5'-phosphosulfate synthase 2. In humans, adenosine phosphosulfate is involved in sulfate/sulfite metabolism. Outside of the human body, Adenosine phosphosulfate has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as chia, yardlong beans, swiss chards, sapodilla, and chicory leaves. This could make adenosine phosphosulfate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. An adenosine 5'-phosphate having a sulfo group attached to one the phosphate OH groups.
