Enhanced Diagnostic Tools
LNA bases can be used to make improved antisense chimeras in the same way that other 2´-modifications have been employed in the past, such as 2´-O-methyl RNA, MOE´s, etc. The use of LNAs offers improved Tm, increased resistance to cellular nucleases, and increased potency of the antisense oligo.
