Hybridization dependent cleavage of internally modified disulfide-peptide nucleic acids.


PMID 15664802

Abstract

Selectivity of the cleavage of single stranded over hybridized forms of internally modified disulfide-peptide nucleic acids (PNA) has been optimized using a series of phosphines and thiols, which have different sizes and charges. For the most selective cleaver found (tris-(carboxyethyl)-phosphine), reactivity of single stranded PNA is 33 times higher than that of the PNA-DNA duplex. Selectivity of single stranded disulfide-PNA cleavage has been explained in terms of electrostatic interaction between the substrate and the cleaver.
