Product Information Molecular Structure


Description: 7-Methyl-6-thioguanosine (MESG, Abs = 330 nm) forms 7-methyl-6-thioguanine (Abs = 355 nm) in the presense of inorganic phosphate and purine nucleoside phosphorylase (PNP) and thus constitutes a rapid and sensitive assay for phosphate. If inorganic pyrophosphatase is present, MESG may also be used to detect inorganic pyrophosphate.

MESG should be used as soon as possible after dissolution.
