I am assigned the task of explaining a biomedical research paper, it is about telomere and telomerase , and it talks a lot about the molecule Thio-2-Deoxyguanosine , 13-mer thio-phosphoramidate and " 6-thio-2-deoxyguanosine 5′-triphosphate".

I have a good understanding of what the paper is saying , but I would really like to know as much as I can about those molecules, their chemical classification and biological function and chemical composition, any ideas?

Thanks in advance

(Please do not mark this as off-topic , as I asked this in biochemistry stack exchange, and they wanted me to put it here )

    $\begingroup$ Google is your friend! 6-thio-2'-deoxyguanosine for example is commercially available sigmaaldrich.com/catalog/product/sigma/… $\endgroup$ – Waylander Jan 2 at 8:51
  • $\begingroup$ "How do I learn more about them ?". Go to Chemspider, Pubchem, ChEMBL, and literally all the databases which can be found under the "Identifiers" section of Wikipedia for that specific molecule. The 3 databases mentioned above give a summary of molecules, their physical and chemical attributes as well as a link to further readings/papers. You can also find more information about your molecules in the references of your first paper. chemspider.com pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov ebi.ac.uk/chembl good luck! $\endgroup$ – Sam Jan 4 at 10:41
  • $\begingroup$ we all know those sites, zero results in all databases $\endgroup$ – Dhia Hassen Jan 5 at 10:35
