An attractive strategy for nucleic acid conjugation involves the Cu(I)-catalyzed click reaction between terminal alkynes and azides. While 5-Ethynyl-dU in oligonucleotides has been reported to undergo the click reaction,(1) the short rigid nature of the alkyne group severely limits its application for this purpose. 5-Octadiynyl-dU CE-Phosphoramidite (BA0308)(2) is a much superior reagent for the installation of an alkyne-bearing nucleoside into an oligonucleotide when click reactions are contemplated. The terminal alkyne is more flexible and extends farther away from the pyrimidine ring, thereby allowing more efficient ligation via click chemistry, even when multiple ligations to a single oligo are desired. Interestingly, the 5-Octadiynyl-dU modification gives a slight stabilization of DNA duplexes, much like the well-known effect of propynyl-dU modification.2(a)
5-Propargyloxy-dU CE-Phosphoramidite (BA0174) is an analogous reagent to BA0308 for the facilitation of oligo click ligations. The intermediate length of the alkyne appendage allows for efficient ligation. We also offer the related nucleoside 5-(Propargyloxy)-2'-deoxyuridine (PY7712).
