    Solution Preview

    There are four different important ribonucleotides and four important deoxyribonucleotides that are generated by our bodies. These can be divided into two classes: purines and pyrimidines. The two purines, found both in ribonucleotides and deoxyribonucleotides, ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution provides information on positions labeled in ATP and GTP during purine biosynthesis when the synthesis was allowed to take place in the presence of [N15] aspartate.
