Structure of solfapterin (erythro-neopterin-3'-D-2-deoxy-2-aminoglucopyranoside) isolated from the thermophilic archaebacterium Sulfolobus solfataricus.

By X L Lin and R H White


The structure of the major fluorescent pterin present in thermophilic archaebacterium Sulfolobus solfataricus has been assigned, by analysis of the intact molecule and its hydrolytic and periodate cleavage products, as erythro-neopterin-3'-D-2-deoxy-2-aminoglucopyranoside. The trivial name solfapterin is proposed for this compound
