Split article[edit]

The structure of AICAR is incorrect. It should not possess the phosphate group. Consequently/additionally, the discussion of the topic is incorrect and/or flawed. If I was more familiar with how to change things, I would make the changes. Until I am able to do that, I suggest this page be flagged or removed. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.253.172.102 (talk) 03:52, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Hello. Ribonucleotide or ribotide implies a phosphate group as well. See http://biocyc.org/META/NEW-IMAGE?type=COMPOUND&object=AICAR and http://www.chemspider.com/58620 --kupirijo (talk) 22:39, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
On second thought I read the references and they refer to the riboside NOT the ribotide. May I suggest splitting the article into 5-Aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide ribotide and 5-Aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide riboside. --kupirijo (talk) 23:39, 10 April 2011 (UTC)
