'adenylylation' vs 'adenylation'
  


Hi All

Can anyone tell me the difference between the terms 'adenylylation' and 'adenylation'? Am I right to believe that one, 'adenylylation,' is correct, whereas the other, 'adenylation,' is a common misspelling? Or, are both correct, denoting different processes?

Thanks a bunch!

Hey Louie,

I've always used adenylylation on tests, but as far as I know one can both use adenylyl cyclase and adenylate cyclase to mean the same enzyme. So I think either term is okay.

cheers.

dear louie . they are different terms . adenylation is when only adenine gets added to something . while adenylylation is term used when adeninine +ribose +phosphate gets added (AMP).similarly when only guanine is added it is guanylation but when GMP (Guanosine monophosphate gets added ) it is guanylylation and so on
