Abstract: Pseudonucleosides and pseudonucleotides are useful in the synthesis of oligomers which contain these components as a means to derivatize the resulting oligonucleotide to useful substituents such as chelators, intercalators, or lipophilic compounds. In general, these pseudonucleotide components are of the formula: ##STR1## wherein each Y is independently O or S; each X is independently H, PO.sub.3.sup.-2, an activated nucleotide synthesis coupling moiety, a protecting group, a nucleoside, a nucleotide or a nucleotide sequence, or comprises a solid support;F is a functional group capable of linking an additional moiety or said group already reacted to effect the binding of said additional moiety;.quadrature.
Abstract: Oligonucleotide sequences modified by conjugation to at least one unsubstituted or substituted anthraquinone at other than the 5' terminus have favorable properties in enhancing hybridization to target DNA or RNA without loss of specificity and show enhanced stability to nucleases.
