9 Zhu, JudyAnalysis of the pH-dependent equilibrium relationship between the guanine oxidation products 5-guanidinohydantoin and iminoallantoinOxidation of 2'-deoxyguanosine (dG) results in the major two-electron product 8-oxo-7,8-dihydro-2'-deoxyguanosine (dOG) that can undergo further oxidation to other products. One such product is 5-guanidinohydantoin (dGh) that is highly mutagenic and has been found in vivo. The ring architecture of d...Oxidation; guanine oxidation products; 5-guanidinohydantoin; Iminoallantoin; Equilibrium relationship2015-05
