B 12 antivitamins are important and robust tools for investigating the biological roles of vitamin B 12 . Here, the potential antivitamin B 12 2,4-difluorophenylethynylcobalamin (F2PhEtyCbl) was prepared, and its 3D structure was studied in solution and in the crystal. Chemically inert F2PhEtyCbl resisted thermolysis of its Co-C bond at 100 °C, was stable in bright daylight, and also remained intact upon prolonged storage in aqueous solution at room temperature. It binds to the human B 12 -processing enzyme CblC with high affinity (K D =130 nm) in the presence of the cosubstrate glutathione (GSH). F2PhEtyCbl withstood tailoring by CblC, and it also stabilized the ternary complex with GSH. The crystal structure of this inactivated assembly provides first insight into the binding interactions between an antivitamin B 12 and CblC, as well as into the organization of GSH and a base-off cobalamin in the active site of this enzyme.
