BA 0315
Product Information Molecular Structure

Caged strand-breaker CEP

Notes: Once installed into an oligonucleotide, irradiation at 365 nm at neutral pH causes strand cleavage, leaving phosphate groups on both daughter strands. In contrast to other related monomers, a second step involving treatment with base is not required.


The introduction of nicks in DNA may be accomplished using photolabile nucleotides or nucleotide surrogates, resulting in so-called "caged strand-breaks".1 Various non-nucleosidic monomers have been developed for this purpose.2-7 Caged Strand-Breaker CEP is the most advanced example of this strategy, allowing complete removal of the photolabile protecting group from both phosphorylated daughter strands and the avoidance of a second step involving base treatment.6
