(41) The initial metabolite of GMP is inosine monophosphate or guanosine, (42, 43) suggesting that the metabolic pathways involving these two metabolites are involved in the regulation of GTP and GDP levels during the S-M phases or that GDP is generated from a preexisting GMP pool during the S-M phases.
