Oligonucleotide Tagging for Copper-Free Click Conjugation
AbstractCopper-free click chemistry between cyclooctynes and azide is a mild, fast and selective technology for conjugation of oligonucleotides. However, technology for site-specific introduction of the requisite probes by automated protocols is scarce, while the reported cyclooctynes are large and hydrophobic. In this work, it is demonstrated that the introduction of bicyclo[6.1.0]nonyne (BCN) into synthetic oligonucleotides is feasible by standard solid-phase phosphoramidite chemistry. A range of phosphoramidite building blocks is presented for incoporation of BCN or azide, either on-support or in solution. The usefulness of the approach is demonstrated by the straightforward and high-yielding conjugation of the resulting oligonucleotides, including biotinylation, fluorescent labeling, dimerization and attachment to polymer.
