Cyclopropane-fused carbocyclic adenosine (4) and its 5’-carboxaldehyde analogue (5) were synthesized as potential inhibitors of S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase. The key bicyclo[3.1.0]hexane alcohol (8) was obtained from the optically pure cyclopentenone synthon (6), and attachment of the purine base was performed in a single step from the methylsulfonate ester of 8 (compound (9)). Both target compounds behaved as weak inhibitors of the hydrolase.
