Isoguanosine (Iso-G, PR
3735) and 2'-Deoxyisoguanosine
(Iso-dG, PR 3465) are isomeric with
G/dG, differing by transposition of the carbonyl group at position 6 of G or dG
with the C-NH2 group at
position 2, providing
a novel hydrogen bond donor/acceptor pattern.
Description: The transposition of atoms or groups in the purine nucleobase of G/dG provides
isomers that have altered base-pairing capabilities.We offer a family of guanosine isomers
in nucleoside and phosphoramidite forms.
are important in the field of non-natural base pairing. In 1989, Benner and
co-workers1 reported the enzymatic incorporation of iso-G into RNA
and DNA and characterized the distinct non-natural base pairing that resulted,
especially pairing involving the similarly transposed isomer of dC known as
iso-dC (we offer the closely-related compound 5-Methyliso-dC,
and Iso-dG are part of a family that includes Guanosine
(PR 3703) , 2'-Deoxyguanosine
(PR 3452) , the isomeric nucleosides
(Pseudo-dG, PRA 10103) ,
(Pseudoiso-dG, PRA 10104)
and the phosphoramidites Pseudo-dG
