Expanding the hoogsteen edge of 2'-deoxyguanosine: Consequences for G-quadruplex formation

Gubala, V., Betancourt, J.E., Rivera, J.M. (2004) Expanding the hoogsteen edge of 2'-deoxyguanosine: Consequences for G-quadruplex formation. Organic Letters, 6 (25). pp. 4735-4738. ISSN 1523-7060. (doi:10.1021/ol048013v) (KAR id:45250)


(Chemical Equation Presented) The synthesis and self-assembling properties of 8-aryl-2'-deoxyguanosine derivatives are described. Our studies suggest that a properly placed acetyl group can increase the stability and specificity of the resulting G-quadruplex supramolecules by enhancing noncovalent interactions such as hydrogen bonds and Ï?-stacking.
