(dē-oks'ē-ă-den'ō-sēn),
2'-Deoxyribosyladenine, one of the four major nucleosides of DNA (the others being deoxycytidine, deoxyguanosine, and thymidine). The 5' derivative is also an important component of one form of vitamin B12. Deoxyadenosine accumulates in people with severe combined immunodeficiency disease.

The amplification solution consisted of the following: 1 [micro]mol/L of each consensus primer; 200 [micro]mol/L each of deoxyadenosine triphosphate, deoxycytidine triphosphate, and deoxyguanosine triphosphate; and 140 [micro]mol/L of deoxythymidine triphosphate.
Individual dNTPs [TTP, dGTP, dCTP, or deoxyadenosine a-thio-triphosphate (dATPaS)] were sequentially added to the reactions after each elongation reaction step.

4) deficiency demonstrated other peaks with spectra similar to adenosine (indicated by an asterisk in the electropherogram) in addition to the diagnostic metabolite, deoxyadenosine (Fig.
The enzyme also accepts deoxyadenosine as a substrate, converting it to deoxyinosine (Fig.
