2-Amino-dA CE-Phosphoramidite

2-Amino-dA CE-Phosphoramidite

CAS No.:1432451-35-8

Phosphoramidite used to incorporate a 2-amino-modified deoxyadenosine into an oligonucleotide.
  • Improves duplex stabilisation when used in place of dA. Forms an additional hydrogen bond with thymidine.
  • Also destabilises A-G wobble mismatches, thus increasing specificity.
  • Also known as 2,6-diaminopurine.

Product information

During duplex hybridisation of unmodified oligos, A-T base pairs have two hydrogen bonds, whereas G-C base pairs have three. One of the simplest methods of improving duplex stabilisation is the use of 2-Amino-dA phosphoramidite (2,6-diaminopurine) in place of dA.(1) This forms an additional hydrogen bond with thymidine. However, this product also destabilises A-G wobble mismatches, thus increasing specificity.
