Biological Description
Chemical Properties
Storage & Solubility Information
Description 2-(Methylamino)-1H-purin-6(7H)-one is an endogenous methylated nucleoside found in human fluids and a modified nucleoside.
In vitro 2-(Methylamino)-1H-purin-6(7H)-one is the principal kinetic barrier for reverse transcription in the 1340 bases proximal to the 5' end of E. coli 16S rRNA. Transcription intermediates correspond to attenuation at the positions of 2-(Methylamino)-1H-purin-6(7H)-one in the rRNA sequence. The relaxation time for elongation of the cDNA through m2G is approximately 3 min[1]. 2-(Methylamino)-1H-purin-6(7H)-one is found within both helical and looped regions of RNA secondary structure, and it can exist in either the s-cis or the s-trans rotamer. If there is a rotational preference for the methyl group, the effect of 2-(Methylamino)-1H-purin-6(7H)-one substitution may be specific to the sequence context depending upon which face of the base participates in hydrogen bonding[2].

Molarity Calculator allows you to calculate the

  • Mass of a compound required to prepare a solution of known volume and concentration
  • Volume of solution required to dissolve a compound of known mass to a desired concentration
  • Concentration of a solution resulting from a known mass of compound in a specific volume
See Example

An example of a molarity calculation using the molarity calculator
What is the mass of compound required to make a 10 mM stock solution in 10 ml of water given that the molecular weight of the compound is 197.13 g/mol?
Enter 197.13 into the Molecular Weight (MW) box
Enter 10 into the Concentration box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 10 into the Volume box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 19.713 mg appears in the Mass box


Calculator the dilution required to prepare a stock solution

Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution
The dilution calculator is a useful tool which allows you to calculate how to dilute a stock solution of known concentration. Enter C1, C2 & V2 to calculate V1.

See Example

An example of a dilution calculation using the Tocris dilution calculator
What volume of a given 10 mM stock solution is required to make 20ml of a 50 μM solution?
Using the equation C1V1 = C2V2, where C1=10 mM, C2=50 μM, V2=20 ml and V1 is the unknown:
Enter 10 into the Concentration (start) box and select the correct unit (millimolar)
Enter 50 into the Concentration (final) box and select the correct unit (micromolar)
Enter 20 into the Volume (final) box and select the correct unit (milliliter)
Press calculate
The answer of 100 microliter (0.1 ml) appears in the Volume (start) box
