A new application of solid-supported reagents was developed to separate the alkylated N7/N9 regioisomers derived from commercially available 2-amino-6-chloropurine. Simple filtration through an alumina/H+ pad or scavenging by AG/Dowex-50W-X8 resin provides diverse N9 regioisomers selectively in moderate yields with high...

Protecting the hydroxyl group in both 2-bromo-2-phenylethanol and 2-bromo-1-phenylethanol enhanced the alkylation of 2-amino-6-chloropurine to give corresponding 7- and 9-alkylated products. Subsequent hydrolysis and deprotection led to 7- and 9-hydroxy(phenyl)ethylguanines. 7-Hydroxy(phenyl)ethylguanines are major guanine adducts formed by interaction of styrene...

2-Amino-6-chloro-1-deazapurine is of interest as a purine analog with demonstrated in vivo activity against mouse leukemia L1210. That the active form of this agent is a nucleotide and that the nucleotide is formed by the action of hypoxanthine (guanine) phosphoribosyltransferase...

Nucleoside deoxyribosyltransferase-II (NdRT-II) of Lactobacillus helveticus, which catalyzes the transfer of a glycosyl residue from a donor deoxyribonucleoside to an acceptor base, has a broad specificity for the acceptor bases. Six-substituted purines were found to be substrates as acceptor bases...
