Bio-Synthesis offers several light-triggered oligonucleotide modifications. These modified oligonucleotides are excellent tools for investigating the fundamental mechanisms in biological research. These light induced modified oligonucleotides allow for the temporal control of the base pairing process. In their caged form, the oligonucleotides are unable to participate in base pairing. It is only after exposure to UV light at 365 nm that the native oligonucleotides are released. Oligonucleotides containing NPOM-Caged-dT every five or six bases do not hybridize to their complementary strand. DEACM-dG is a convenient way to introduce a photocage at specific positions. These photoconvertible bases can be incorporated in the backbone, ribose, and nucleobase of an oligonucleotide to undergo various reversible or irreversible light-induced reactions.

Quality Control: Analytical HPLC, Gel eletrophoresis, and  MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometry

Delivery times: 5-7 Working days

Packaging:    Dried

Shipping conditions: Room temperature

Storage conditions: -20 oC to -70 oC

Oligonucleotides are stable in solution at 4 oC for up to 2 weeks. Properly reconstituted material stored at -20 oC should be stable for at least 6 months. Dried DNA (when kept at -20 oC) in a nuclease-free environment should be stable for years.
