Abstract

IN view of the present-day interest in methylated purines as minor components of RNA and DNA1, and their possible role in mutagenesis, carcinogenesis2 and protein synthesis3, the preparation of N-methylated purine nucleosides and nucleotides has attracted increased attention4–6. One of the aims of these investigations is to find the reactive sites of the purine bases toward alkylating agents.
