Adenosine, 8-chloro- - an antimetabolite and a chlorine derivative of the purine nucleoside adenosine, with potential antineoplastic activity. Upon administration, 8-chloro-adenosine is phosphorylated to form 8-chloro-adenosine triphosphate (8-chloro-atp), which functions as a ribonucleoside analogue and competes with atp during transcription. Therefore, this agent causes rna synthesis inhibition, inhibits cellular proliferation, and induces apoptosis. Also see 8-chloroadenosine
