Disodium guanosine 5'-monophosphate was reported previously to crystallize as both the tetrahydrate and the heptahydrate. We herein report a determination of the molecular and crystal structures of the title tetrahydrated salt, 2Na+·C10H12N5O8P2-·4H2O. It was found that the structure differs markedly from that of the heptahydrate, but greatly resembles that of disodium deoxyguanosine 5'-monophosphate tetrahydrate. The C2'-O2'H moiety of ribose is surrounded by hydrophilic moieties and is… CONTINUE READING
