Retention and Separation of Nucleotides

This Method demonstrates the ability to retain two Adenosine analytes using an Aqueous Normal Phase (ANP) Gradient.  As the Amide is good for Retaining and Separating Sugars, this Method demonstrates a simple Gradient that can work with many other similar compounds.

1. Adenosine 5’-Triphosphate (ATP)
2. Adenosine 5’-Monophosphate (AMP)

Note: Nucleotides are important Phosphate-containing compounds that are found in living cells and are associated with a broad array of metabolic and biological processes. They have significant roles in the synthesis of DNA and RNA, are involved in signal transduction pathways, function as coenzymes in biosynthetic pathways and serve as energy reservoirs in biological systems.
