Wide specificity for 5'-nucleotides.

Rate-limiting Description

"In H9c2 cells, in which 5'-nucleotidase activity was rate-limiting, only cN-II overexpression accelerated inosine and hypoxanthine formation." (10766785)

"AMP, ADP, and ATP were all rapidly converted to adenosine, with a T1/2 for ATP conversion to adenosine of approximately 200 msec, and the last step in this pathway (transformation of AMP to adenosine by 5'-nucleotidase) seems to be the rate-limiting step." (9315889)
