Determination of Cyclic GMP in Biological Material
Guanosine 3′,5′-monophosphate (cGMP) has been detected in most animal (11) and plant (12) tissues and in bacteria (1). Its concentration generally varies between 10-8 and 10-7 mol/kg wet weight, although in some cases it can be as high as 10-6 mol/kg (11). This is very low compared to the concentrations of related nucleotides and of cAMP.
