  Guanine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Guanine is one of the five main nucleobases found in the nucleic acids DNA and RNA; the others being adenine, cytosine, thymine, and uracil.
Guanine has a group at C-6 that acts as the hydrogen acceptor, while the group at N-1 and the amino group at C-2 acts as the hydrogen donors.
The first isolation of guanine was reported in 1844 from the excreta of sea birds, known as guano, which was used as a source of fertilizer.

The accepted structure of the guanine molecule was proposed in 1875, and the compound was first synthesized in 1900.
When combined with the sugar ribose in a glycosidic linkage, guanine forms a derivative called guanosine (a nucleoside), which in turn can be phosphorylated with from one to three phosphoric acid groups, yielding the three nucleotides GMP (guanosine monophosphate), GDP (guanosine diphosphate), and GTP (guanosine triphosphate).
Guanine is said to account for the iridescence of fish scales and the white, shiny appearance of the skin of many amphibians and reptiles.

 Guanine
Described as a bound nucleotide, it differs from free nucleotides such as ATP and GTP in that it exists as a part of a polynucleotide, instead of a single molecule extant in the cell.
Guanine thus serves as a constituent element of both DNA and RNA.
Guanine differs in its molecular structure from cytosine, the pyrimidine based nucleotide with which it forms a Watson-Crick complementary base pair, in that it incorporates an oxygen atom and has differently configured double nitrogen ring.

They discovered that four major regions in the potential domain responded to the presence of guanine, hypoxanthine and xanthine (the latter two being guanine analogs) but not to adenine, which suggested that the region was capable of allosteric binding specific to guanine and could distinguish its substrate from adenine (results in figure 2).
The second assay repeated the in-line probe with different concentrations of guanine and found that increasing the guanine concentration led to a progressive increase in the amount of RNA experiencing structural change (results in figure 3).
The effects of guanine, xanthine and hypoxanthine were compared, and all three were able to reduce reporter gene expression, with guanine being the most effective substrate (results in figure 6C).

 GUANINE (2-AMINO-6-HYDROXYPURINE)
Guanosine Triphosphate (GTP) : a nucleotide composed of guanine, the sugar ribose, and three phosphate groups; the source of the guanosine found in RNA and also involved in many cellular processes, including microtubule assembly, protein synthesis, and cell signaling, due to the energy it releases upon removal of its terminal phosphate group (yielding GDP).
The ratio of GTP to ATP is maintained by the reversible transfer of phosphate catalyzed by GDP kinase.
In addition to adenine and guanine, a group of chemical compounds called purine base include hypoxanthine (6-oxypurine), xanthine (2,6-dioxypurine), uric acid (2,6,8-trioxypurine), and theobromine (3,7-dimethyl xanthine).

 Telomeric DNA dimerizes by formation of guanine tetrads between hairpin loops
The guanine-rich strand is always oriented in a 5'−3' direction towards the end of the chromosome and is extended to produce a 3' overhang of about two repeating units in species where the telomeric terminus is known
This salt-dependent dimerization is mediated entirely by the 3'-terminal telomeric overhang (TT-GGGGTTGGGG) and produces complexes in which the N7 position of every guanine in the overhangs is chemically inaccessible.
These novel hairpin dimers may be important in telomere association and recombination and could also provide a general mechanism for pairing two double helices in other recombinational processes.

 Disruption of dog-1 in Caenorhabditis elegans triggers deletions upstream of guanine-rich DNA - Nature Genetics
The G quartets are characterized by a variable stack of guanine quartet planes with strands in either a parallel or an antiparallel orientation
We detected no deletions in any of the 5 G/C-tracts with 18 or fewer guanine nucleotides (Table 1), indicating that a threshold length is probably required for deletions to occur.
Because genetic deletions in gk10 nematodes seem to be initiated at the 3' end of polyguanine tracts and to involve about half of the polyguanine tracts examined, we propose that these deletions result from failure to resolve secondary structures of guanine-rich DNA that may arise sporadically during lagging-strand DNA synthesis (Fig.

 Zinc Binding to Guanine
The structure lends some credence to the idea that two guanine groups in close proximity in a DNA strand can bind two Zn(II) ions without undue steric strain.
The structure “suggests also that the guanine N7–zinc–guanine O6 cross-linking could be quite feasible, enhancing the ability of zinc to control the renaturation process.”
The authors note that “the ability of Zn(II) ions to bind to the O6 site of guanine could potentially be utilized in the design of the inhibitors of O6-alkylguanine-DNA alkyltransferase (Atase), a DNA repair protein responsible for removing alkyl groups from the guanine residues.
