In the title compound, C13H21N3O5, the pyrimidine ring adopts the antiperiplanar (-ap) conformation [ χ = 193.54 (19)°]. The deoxyribose sugar ring has the C2′-exo-C3′-endo (2T3) twist conformation. The pseudo-rotational parameters of the deoxyribose sugar ring are P = 6.83 (2)° and τm = 38.27 (2)°. The exocyclic side chain at C5′ has the g+ conformation [γ = 47.7 (3)°]. The 5-methoxymethyl group is distal to the deoxyribose sugar ring, with a C6-C5-C52-O52 torsion angle of -91.9 (3)°.
