Abstract

Lysyl-tRNA synthetase isolated from rat liver cleaves glycosidic bond of 5-Fluorouridine and 5-Fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine to generate 5-Fluorouracil. The generation of 5-Fluorouracil was monitored by cellulose thin layer chromatography and by spectrophotometry. The enzyme was found to be 1.4 fold more efficient in cleaving the glycosidic bond of 5-Fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine than 5-Fluorouridine.
