  • Publication number: 20180016575
    Abstract: The present relates to LNA gapmer antisense oligonucleotides which comprise stereodefined phosphoramidite linkages. The use of stereodefined phosphoramidite linkages in LNA gapmers has been found to provide enhanced RNaseH activity, and modifying stereospecificity enables the reduced toxicity, altered biodistribution, and enhanced mismatch discrimination.

  • Patent number: 9738894
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to novel double-stranded short interfering (siRNA) analogs comprising locked nucleic acid (LNA) monomers. Such compounds induces sequence-specific post-transcriptional gene silencing in many organisms by a process known as RNA interference (RNAi). The compounds disclosed herein has improved properties compared to non-modified siRNAs and may, accordingly, be useful as therapeutic agents, e.g., in the treatment of various cancer forms. More particularly, the present invention is directed to siRNA analogs comprising a sense strand and an antisense strand, wherein each strand comprises 12-35 nucleotides and wherein the siRNA analogs comprise at least one locked nucleic acid (LNA) monomer.
