Product Information Molecular Structure

5-Aminoallyl-dU CEP

Notes: Allows the introduction of a 5-aminoallyl-dU residue into oligonucleotides for the purpose of post-synthetic labeling by acylation. Further, triplex-forming oligonucleotides (TFOs) containing this residue form triplexes that are similar in stability to those bearing unmodified residues.

Description:  Early work on the introduction of a 5-aminoallyl-dU amino modifier into oligonucleotides involved the methyl phosphoramidite.1 5-Aminoallyl-dU CEP, employing a 2-cyanoethyl phosphoramidite, was reported later.2,3

Williams and co-workers3 studied the incorporation of 5-aminoallyl-dU residues into triplex-forming oligonucleotides (TFOs), where a single incorporation did not change the stability of the triplex vs. unmodified TFOs. Multiple incorporations led to a lower triplex stability. The pKa of the protonated form of the amino group of 5-aminoallyl-dU is expected to be 9.7 based on studies on the free nucleoside. Conformational studies on the nucleoside were also carried out.
