Structurally, GSH is made up of a tripeptide, consisting of glutamic acid, cysteine and glycine residues, while functionally it participates in the detoxification of [alpha]-oxoaldehydes, the reduction of ribonucleotides to deoxyribonucleotides, the regulation of both protein and gene expression, through thiol: disulfide exchange reactions, (14) and as a component of the glyoxalase system, which functions in the control of cellular growth.
This resonance is also likely to include other ribonucleotides (RNA monomers) and deoxyribonucleotides (DNA monomers), as they resonate at very similar chemical shifts (Turner et al.

The genetic vocabulary of commands consists of the deoxyribonucleotides, A, T, G, and C, and the results are the synthesis of ribonucleic acids ("RNA") or polypeptides (which form proteins).
Its resistance to the action of adenosine deaminase results in a preferential toxic accumulation of deoxyribonucleotides in certain lymphocyte subpopulations.
DNA polymerase cannot create links between deoxyribonucleotides unless a free 3'-OH residue (ribo- or deoxyribonucleotide) permits the initiation of replication.
