Abstract

Abstract Adenosine is cleaved non-enzymically in the presence of ketopentose, Cu ++, and pyrophosphate at 70° to yield small amounts of 5-amino-1-ribosyl imidazole. A similar diazotizable amine may be produced non-enzymically from ATP under conditions found in biological experiments. The preparation and characterization of the imidazole derived from adenosine are described. Two additional adenosine derivatives which are produced during the reaction have been partially characterized as 6-amino substituted compounds.
