  • Patent number: 4904582
    Abstract: Novel oligonucleotide conjugates are provided, where oligonucleotides are joined through a linking arm to a hydrophobic moiety. The resulting conjugates are more efficient in membrane transport, so as to be capable of crossing the membrane and effectively modulating a transcriptional system. In this way, the compositions can be used in vitro and in vivo, for studying cellular processes, protecting mammalian hosts from pathogens, and the like.
