Synthesis of 5-(1-propynyl)-2'-deoxyuridine 5'-(alpha-P-borano)triphosphate and kinetic characterization as a substrate for mmlv reverse transcriptase.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

In order to introduce pyrimidine C5-propynyl modification into boranophosphate oligodeoxyribonucleotides (BP- ODNs), 5-(1-propynyl)-2'-deoxyuridine 5'-(alpha-P-borano) triphosphate (d5PUTPalphaB) was synthesized. The two diastereomers were separated by reverse-phase HPLC. Kinetic studies showed that the Rp isomer was a slightly better substrate for MMLV reverse transcriptase than thymidine triphosphate or Rp-thymidine 5'-(alpha-P-borano)triphosphate. Using the Rp isomers of d5PUTPalphaB and the other three 5'-(alpha-P-borano) triphosphates, a DNA primer could be extended to the full length of the template.
