Comment: The registry number and Chemical Abstracts Index Name listed are for the chloride salt. The registry number (144796-96-3) and Chemical Abstracts Index Name (L-Lysine, N6-(1,4-dihydro-4-imino- 1-b-D-ribofuranosyl-2-pyrimidinyl)-) assigned to the neutral nucleoside are less effective in retrieval of lysidine literature. Alternate symbols are L and acp2C. The latter symbol is not recommended because the notation acp has a different structural definition, and is more commonly used in nucleoside acp3U. The common name "lysidine" was previously assigned to 4,5-dihydro-2-methyl-1H-imidazole (registry number 534-26-9).
