Guanosine is a purine nucleoside with important functions in cell metabolism and a protective role in response to degenerative disease or injury thought to have neuroprotective properties. It is release in the brain under physiological conditions and during pathological events, reducing neuroinflammation, oxidative stress, excitotoxicity, and exerts trophic effects in neuronal and glial cells. Guanosine is a purine nucleoside in which guanine is linked to a ribofuranose ring by a beta- N9-glycosidic bond. Guanosine can be phosphorylated to become guanosine monophosphate, cyclic guanosine monophosphate, guanosine diphosphate (GDP), and guanosine triphosphate, which are factors in signal transduction pathways. The exact mechanism of action by which guanosine exert its neuroprotective properties remains to be fully elucidated but studies have shown that the biological effects are unrelated to direct G-proteins modulations but associated with the modulation of the glutamatergic and adenosinergic systems, trophic effects on neural cells and anti-apoptotic activity.
