Guanosine is a purine nucleoside that upon sequential phosphoylation (kinases) forms GTP which is used by RNA polymerases to synthesis RNA(s). GTP is also important in a wide range of GTPase-dependent cell signaling processes. Guanosine is used in selective matricies such a guanosine gels (G-gels) for use in capillary electrophoresis chiral selection and other applications.

The initiation of mRNA degradation often requires deprotection of its 5' end. In eukaryotes, the 5'-methylguanosine (cap) structure is principally removed by the Nudix family decapping enzyme Dcp2, yielding a 5'-monophosphorylated RNA that is a substrate for 5' exoribonucleases. In...

Immune sensing of DNA is critical for antiviral immunity but can also trigger autoimmune diseases such as lupus erythematosus (LE). Here we have provided evidence for the involvement of a damage-associated DNA modification in the detection of cytosolic DNA. The oxidized base...

Novel square-planar palladium(II) complexes with O-N-N-O-type ligands H4mda (H4mda=malamido-N,N'-diacetic acid) and H4obp (H4obp=oxamido-N,N'-di-3-propionic acid) were prepared and characterized. The ligands coordinate to the palladium(II) ion via two pairs of deprotonated ligating atoms with square chelation. A four coordinate, square-planar geometry...

Recognition of the methyl-7-guanosine (m(7)G) cap structure on mRNA is an essential feature of mRNA metabolism and thus gene expression. Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E (eIF4E) promotes translation, mRNA export, proliferation, and oncogenic transformation dependent on this cap-binding activity. eIF4E-cap...

Nature's use of a simple genetic code to enable life's complex functions is an inspiration for supramolecular chemistry. DNA nucleobases carry the key information utilizing a variety of cooperative and non-covalent interactions such as hydrophobic, van der Waals, pi-pi stacking...
