Cucurbiturils in nucleic acids research

Author affiliations

Abstract

During the past ten years, the importance of cucurbiturils (CB[n]) as macrocyclic hosts in supramolecular assemblies with various types of natural and synthetic nucleic acids (NAs) has increased explosively. As a component of such systems, CB[n] macrocycles can play a wide spectrum of roles from drug and gene delivery vehicles to catalysts/inhibitors of biochemical reactions and even building blocks for NA-based materials. The aim of this highlight article is to describe the development of the CB[n] applications in nucleic acids research and to outline the current situation and perspectives of this fascinating synergistic combination of supramolecular chemistry of CB[n] and NAs.
