Sources/Uses

"An inosine nucleotide containing a pyrophosphate group esterified to C5 of the sugar moiety." [ChemIDplus] "Inosine is a nucleoside that is formed when hypoxanthine is attached to a ribose ring (also known as a ribofuranose) via a N9-glycosidic bond. Inosine is commonly found in tRNAs and is essential for proper translation of the genetic code in wobble base pairs." [Wikipedia]
