  • Publication number: 20190144488
    Abstract: This invention generally relates to the field of phosphoramidite derivatives. In particular, the invention relates to N-Acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) compounds, in particular phosphoramidite or phosphonoamidite molecules of formula (I) with only one GalNAc moiety (formula II) and to conjugates of nucleic acid molecules with such N-Acetylgalactosamine containing molecules. Also provided are methods for preparation of these molecules and possible uses thereof, in particular in medicine. Wherein R1 is H or C1-6alkyl; R2 is a triphenylmethyl-based hydroxyl protecting group R3 is a phosphorus-containing group, particularly a phosphoramidite or a phosphonoamidite group, and K is represented by the general formula (II).

  • Publication number: 20190055550
    Abstract: Recent advancements in LNA oligonucleotides include the use of amine linkers to link an LNA antisense oligonucleotide to a conjugate group. For example please see WO2014/118267. The present invention originates from the identification of a problem when de-protecting LNA oligonucleotides which comprise an aliphatic amine group and DMF protected LNA G nucleoside, which results in the production of a +28 Da impurity. This problem is solved by using acyl protection groups on the exocyclic nitrogen of the LNA-G residue, rather than the standard DMF protection group.
