Cordycepin is a derivative of adenosine, differing by the absence of oxygen in the 3' position of its ribose part. It is extracted from fungi of Cordyceps.

Cordycepin is the main functional component in Cordyceps, one of the top three famous traditional Chinese medicine. It was reported to have wide range functions, such as enhancing
body's immune function, anti-aging, anti-fatigue, anti-cancer, anti-bacterial and anti-virus, androgen function, hypolipidemic and hypoglycemic effects. US national Cancer Institute defines it as an anticancer drug that belongs to a family of drugs called antitumor antibiotics. It has been used in various health products worldwide.
Cordycepin, being similar to adenosine, can be incorporated into RNA and causes premature termination of its synthesis. Cordycepin and Cordycepin triphosphate have been used extensively in the study of gene/mRNA transcription.
