Inosinic acid Properties

Inosinic acid

Description

 

Inosinic acid or inosine monophosphate (IMP) is a nucleotide monophosphate. Inosinic acid is important in metabolism. It is the ribonucleotide of hypoxanthine and the first nucleotide formed during the synthesis of purine. It is formed by the deamination of adenosine monophosphate, and is hydrolysed from inosine. IMP is an intermediate ribonucleoside monophosphate in purine metabolism.
