In enzymology, an adenosyl-fluoride synthase (EC 2.5.1.63) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

S-adenosyl-L-methionine + fluoride \rightleftharpoons 5'-deoxy-5'-fluoroadenosine + L-methionine

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are S-adenosyl-L-methionine and fluoride, whereas its two products are 5'deoxy-5'-fluoroadenosine and L-methionine.

This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring aryl or alkyl groups other than methyl groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is S-adenosyl-L-methionine:fluoride adenosyltransferase. This enzyme is also called fluorinase.

Structural studies[edit]

As of late 2007, 9 structures have been solved for this class of enzymes, with PDB accession codes 1RQP, 1RQR, 2C2W, 2C4T, 2C4U, 2C5B, 2C5H, 2CBX, and 2CC2.
