Expanding the chemical diversity of TNA with tUTP derivatives that are substrates for a TNA polymerase

Author affiliations

Abstract

Expanding the chemical diversity of threose nucleic acid (TNA) beyond the natural bases would enable the development of TNA polymers with enhanced physicochemical properties. Here, we describe a versatile approach for increasing the chemical diversity of TNA using 5-alkynyl-modified α-L-threofuranosyl uridine triphosphates that are substrates for a TNA polymerase.
