noun[mass noun] Biochemistry
A compound consisting of guanine combined with ribose, present in all living tissue in combined form as nucleotides.
- Standards (adenosine, cytidine, guanosine, pseudouridine, and uridine) were used to determine the optimal gradient conditions for separation.
- Since guanosine is not converted to adenine nucleotides in flies, guanosine must somehow act indirectly, perhaps through a mechanism for balancing nucleotide pools.
- This clearly indicates that the stems are primarily stabilized by the quartet-cation interactions, which are very similar for inosine and guanosine due to close similarity in their electronic structures.
