Synthesis and properties of DNA oligonucleotides with a zwitterionic backbone structure

Author affiliations

Abstract

The nucleosyl amino acid (NAA)-modification of oligonucleotides is introduced, which enables the preparation of oligonucleotides with zwitterionic backbone structures. It is demonstrated that partially zwitterionic NAA-modified DNA oligonucleotides are capable of duplex formation with native polyanionic counterstrands and show retained sensitivity towards base-pairing mismatches.
