Benzimidazole-based nucleotides and dinucleotides have been synthesised to increase the range of chemical tools available to probe the NAD+ biology space. They were examined for their reactivity in alkylation-type reactions, where they yielded unstable alkylated heteoaromatic adducts, both chemically and enzymatically. While unsuited for NAD+ cyclases, these NAD+ analogues could be viable substrates for non-adenine modifying NAD+-dependent enzyme classes.
