"Convertible Nucleosides to Detect Polymerase Bypass in DNA Lesions"

Glen Research provides several unique, base-modified 2’-deoxynucleoside monomers for site-specific modification of oligonucleotides. These synthons are known as convertible nucleosides, and the process for use in oligo modification is referred to as “post-synthetic substitution.” Since their introduction, convertible nucleosides have proven useful in physical-chemical studies and studies of DNA replication, error, and mutation potential.

This note provides an introductory overview of these molecules and a brief update of the key chemistry milestones since their introduction. This note also reviews a recent research application using convertible dG that takes advantage of the site-specific preparation of a DNA lesion to investigate translesion synthesis (TLS) properties of mammalian cell polymerases and the accuracy of Y-family DNA polymerases ĸ (kappa) and ι (iota).

  • Site-specific modifications of RNA oligonucleotides with convertible nucleosides
  • Post-synthetic substitution using convertible nucleosides
  • Research application of convertible dG in post-oligomerization synthesis of lesion-containing double-stranded DNA
