Abstract :

Solid-phase synthesis of 5’-5’-linked oligonucleotides with opposite polarities tethered via nucleic bases has been performed using a modified dinucleoside bearing an H-phosphonate group at the 3’-position of one nucleoside and a dimethoxytrityl group-at the 3’-position of the second nucleoside. This system is aimed at forming a base tetrad at the junction in order to provide better stabilization. The linker used between the two 5’-terminal bases in the same plane involves a triple bond in order to rigidify the junction. The two oligonucleotide :chains are either made of natural nucleosides or one of them is built With N3’ —>P5’ phosphoramidates. (C) 1998 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
