DescriptionGuanine, also known as G or mearlmaid aa, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as purines and purine derivatives. These are aromatic heterocyclic compounds containing a purine moiety, which is formed a pyrimidine-ring ring fused to an imidazole ring. Guanine is a moderately basic compound (based on its pKa). Guanine exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans.
