Readily Accessible Mimics for DNA Targeting (OTT case 11-016)
Summary - N2'-Pyrene-functionalized 2'-amino-alpha-L-LNAs (Locked Nucleic Acids) display extraordinary affinity toward complementary DNA targets due to favorable preorganization of the pyrene moieties for hybridization-induced intercalation. Unfortunately, the synthesis is challenging (~20 steps, <3% yield). Readily available functionalized mimics have been developed.
