Abstract

The major pterin from Escherichia coli was determined as L-monapterin, by applying fluorescence detected circular dichroism (FDCD). FDCD was highly sensitive and specific to fluorescent chiral pterin, and allowed structure determination even in the presence of non-fluorescent contaminants.
