Monosaccharides have the ability to react at the –O position in several different ways. In acidic conditions, monosaccharides can substitute selectively at the anomeric position to produce glycosides.
Note: The Adenine and Guanine structures should be switched.:)
Propose an acid-catalyzed mechanism by which cytosine can form a β-1 N-linkage with 2-deoxy-β-Dribofuranose to produce a deoxynucleoside (DNA) called deoxycytidine.
