2-Aminopurine riboside CEP

Notes: Guanosine analog phosphoramidite which lacks the O6 carbonyl resulting in a hydrogen bonding pattern isomeric with that of adenosine.

Description: Deletion of the O6 carbonyl group of guanosine results in 2-aminopurine riboside (2-AP). The hydrogen bonding pattern of the 2-aminopurine nucleobase (N1 acceptor, H-N2 donor) is isomeric with that of adenosine (N1 acceptor, H-N6 donor). This nucleoside allows the study of the role of exocyclic functional groups, base stacking, and hydrogen bonding patterns in purine-containing nucleic acids. For example, replacement of guanosine residues with 2-AP in the core region of hammerhead ribozymes was useful in determining their role in stabilizing the transition state of ribozyme cleavage.1 The nature of hydrogen-bonding between G-A mismatches in RNA internal loops was studied with 2-AP.2 The role of hydrogen-bonding and stacking interactions in the stability of GNRA loops was probed using 2-AP substitutions.3 The thermodynamic parameters for RNA loops of the type (A)n were determined using time-resolved spectrofluorimetry on RNAs bearing 2-AP residues in place of A residues, since 2-AP is blue fluorescent and was found to have properties in the (A)n region that were otherwise very similar to adenosine.4 In this sense, 2-AP can be used as a non-invasive conformational probe in RNA studies. Of the different phosphoramidites that have been used for 2-aminopurine riboside incorporation into RNA oligonucleotides,1-5 we have chosen to offer 2-Aminopurine riboside CEP in the particular form shown,1,4 which appears to offer the best results in RNA synthesis yield and purity.
