(This article belongs to the Special Issue Synthesis and Applications of Oligonucleotide Conjugates)
Phosphoramidite building blocks of ribostamycin (3 and 4), that may be incorporated at any position of the oligonucleotide sequence, were synthesized. The building blocks, together with a previously described neomycin-modified solid support, were applied for the preparation of aminoglycoside-2′-O-methyl oligoribonucleotide fusions. The fusions were used to clamp a single strand DNA sequence (a purine-rich strand of c-Myc promoter 1) to form triple helical 2′-O-methyl RNA/DNA-hybrid constructs. The potential of the aminoglycoside moieties to stabilize the triple helical constructs were studied by UV-melting profile analysis. View Full-Text
