2 -aminopurine (also Isoadenin ) is an isomer of the nucleobase adenine. Is a heterocyclic organic compound with a purine basic structure and an amino group at position 2

2 -aminopurine is used as a fluorescent molecular markers in nucleic acid research. Most likely it is paired with thymine as adenine analogue, as well as guanine with cytosine analogue. Therefore, it is occasionally used as an experimental mutagen.
