Highly efficient solid phase synthesis of oligonucleotide analogs containing phosphorodithioate linkages.


PMID 10756207

Abstract

A triester method for the synthesis of deoxynucleoside phosphorodithioate dimers is described. The phosphorodithioate linkage is introduced using a new dithiophosphorylating reagent DPSE-SP(S)Cl(2)where DPSE = 2-diphenylmethylsilylethyl. This group is removed quickly using tetra-butylammonium fluoride leading to the quantitative formation of phosphorodithioate diesters uncontaminated with the corresponding phosphorothioates. The utility of this group is demonstrated by the synthesis of a penta-decathymidylic acid, [T(PS(2))T(PO(2))](7)T, which contains alternating phosphorodithioate/phosphate diester internucleotide linkages.
