Comment: 5-(Hydroxymethyl)cytidine and 5-(carboxymethyl)uridine were identified as the monophosphates by their UV spectra following separation by 2D-TLC (data not shown) [1]; however, availability of authentic compounds or of previously cited properties was not addressed. These structure assignments are therefore considered inconclusive.
