Oligonucleotide promoted peptide bond formation using a tRNA mimicking approach

Author affiliations

Abstract

TransferRNA's role in protein translation is the prime example of an Informational Leaving Group (ILG). A simplified model produced oligophenylalanine with a modified uracil as an ILG in the presence of specific oligonucleotides. Our preliminary studies contribute to the importance of hybrid species in bridging the gap between peptides and nucleic acids.
