Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The sodium salt of the dinucleoside phosphate adenosyl-3′,5′- uridine phosphate crystallizes in the form of a right handed antiparallel double helix with Watson-Crick hydrogen bonding between uracil and adenine. A sodium ion is located in the minor groove of the helix complexed to both uracil rings.
