Adenine nucleosides in solution: circular dichroism studies and base conformation.

Adenosine, AMP, S-adenosylhomocysteine, S-adenosylmethionine, aristeromycin and 25 other synthetic adenosine analogs modified in the 4' or 5' positions show certain groups of different circular dichroism (CD) spectra. Both positive and negative Cotton effects can occur in the long-wavelength part (250-270 nm) of the spectra. Molar ellipticities [theta… (More)
