Cytosolic ADAL (Adenosine DeAminase-Like) catalyzes the reaction of N6-methyl-dAMP and water to form dIMP and methylamine. The active form of the enzyme is a protein monomer complexed with a zinc ion (Murakami et al. 2011). Scaletti et al. (2021) suggest that under physiological conditions this reaction could enable the detoxification and salvage of methylated adenosine nucleotides.
