Chemical Neopterin

Name Neopterin
Equivalent Terms 2-Amino-6-(1,2,3-trihydroxypropyl)-4(3H)-pteridinone | Monapterin | Neopterin, (erythro-D)-Isomer | Neopterin, (erythro-L)-Isomer | Neopterin, (R*, R*)-Isomer | Neopterin, (threo-D)-Isomer | Neopterin, (threo-L)-Isomer | Umanopterin
CAS Registry Number 670-65-5
Definition A pteridine derivative present in body fluids; elevated levels result from immune system activation, malignant disease, allograft rejection, and viral infections. (From Stedman, 26th ed) Neopterin also serves as a precursor in the biosynthesis of biopterin.
