Summary of "Hydrogen-Atom Addition to Nucleobases in the Solid State: Characterization of the Corresponding Muoniated Radicals Using μSR."

The radicals formed by muonium (Mu) addition to four nucleobases (adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine) have been characterized by avoided level-crossing muon spin resonance (ALC-μSR). Mu is considered to be a light isotope of the hydrogen atom, and the muoniated radicals observed by ALC-μSR are isotopomers of the radicals initially produced by H addition to the nucleobases. The observed radicals have been assigned by considering the relative energies of the possible radicals reported in the literature and comparing the experimental muon and proton hyperfine coupling constants with values from previously reported electron paramagnetic resonance and ab initio calculations that have been scaled to account for the larger magnetic moment of the muon and its lighter mass compared with the proton. Mu addition is observed to occur only at secondary carbons of the purine rings in adenine and guanine. Mu adds to C8 and C2 of adenine with the relative amount being ∼70:30%, and Mu adds exclusively to C8 of guanine. Mu addition is predominantly to the secondary carbons of the pyrimidine ring in cytosine (C5 and C6 with relative yields ∼80:20%) with a small amount of addition at N3. Mu adds to both the secondary C6 and tertiary C5 in thymine with approximately equal yields as well as the O4 adduct being a minor product.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Steroids in which fission of one or more ring structures and concomitant addition of a hydrogen atom at each terminal group has occurred.

Lasers which use a solid, as opposed to a liquid or gas, as the lasing medium. Common materials used are crystals, such as YAG (YTTRIUM aluminum garnet); alexandrite; and CORUNDUM, doped with a rare earth element such as a NEODYMIUM; ERBIUM; or HOLMIUM. The output is sometimes additionally modified by addition of non-linear optical materials such as potassium titanyl phosphate crystal, which for example is used with neodymium YAG lasers to convert the output light to the visible range.

Liquid perfluorinated carbon compounds which may or may not contain a hetero atom such as nitrogen, oxygen or sulfur, but do not contain another halogen or hydrogen atom. This concept includes fluorocarbon emulsions and fluorocarbon blood substitutes.

Widely distributed enzymes that carry out oxidation-reduction reactions in which one atom of the oxygen molecule is incorporated into the organic substrate; the other oxygen atom is reduced and combined with hydrogen ions to form water. They are also known as monooxygenases or hydroxylases. These reactions require two substrates as reductants for each of the two oxygen atoms. There are different classes of monooxygenases depending on the type of hydrogen-providing cosubstrate (COENZYMES) required in the mixed-function oxidation.

Stable elementary particles having the smallest known positive charge, found in the nuclei of all elements. The proton mass is less than that of a neutron. A proton is the nucleus of the light hydrogen atom, i.e., the hydrogen ion.
