Mechanism of hydroxylamine mutagenesis: an infrared study of the association in non-polar solutions of 5-methyl-N4-hydroxycytosines.


An infrared spectroscopic study has been made of the structure and self-association of 1,5-dimethyl-N4-hydroxycytosine and 1,5-dimethyl-N4-methoxycytosine in several non-polar solvents as a function of concentration and temperature. Both compounds are predominantly in the imino form, and the overall results point to the existence of an intramolecular… (More)
