Chemistry and Biology of Nucleosides and Nucleotides is a collection of papers presented at the symposium on the Chemistry and Biology of Nucleosides and Nucleotides, held on August 30-September 1, 1976, as part of the San Francisco Centennial Meeting of the Carbohydrate Division of the American Chemical Society. Contributors explore the chemistry and biology of nucleosides and nucleotides ans well as the different chemical and instrumental techniques used in their synthesis. This book is comprised of 28 chapters and begins by describing the synthesis of a gene and its introduction into a biological system where it proved to be functional. The synthesis of nucleosides and nucleotides with anticancer and antiviral activity is also discussed, along with the rationale for the design and synthesis of such compounds. Simple models of nucleic acid interactions are described. Subsequent chapters explore the chemistry and biological activity of C-nucleosides related to pseudouridine and of some nucleoside analogs active against tumor cells; the selectivity and stereospecificity of the ribosylation reaction; synthesis of C-glycosyl thiazoles; and C-nucleoside isosteres of some nucleoside antibiotics. This monograph will serve as reference and source material for many workers in biomedical research as teaching material for instructors of advanced science courses.
