Versatile Applications of the Copper(I)-Catalyzed Click Chemistry


The copper(I)-catalyzed click reaction between azide and alkyne (CuAAC) as applied to the modification of oligonucleotides has become increasingly popular and is the foundation of the company baseclick. In this article, the authors from baseclick and LMU München describe several applications to exemplify the broad scope of the method:

  • DNA nanotechnology
  • Next Generation DNA-FISH and mRNA FISH Probes
  • CuAAC for Preparation of Bispecific Aptamers

Other applications of CuAAC that have been developed within the group of Professor Thomas Carell in recent years include synthesis of labelled nucleotides, and synthesis of probes for the sequencing of epigenetic markers. The authors conclude that, despite the numerous applications which have already been developed using CuAAC, many more can be expected in the near future.


TIPS-5-Ethynyl-dU-CE Phosphoramidite



Previous work incorporating 5-Ethynyl-dU-CE Phosphoramidite in oligonucleotide synthesis showed that this modified nucleoside worked well, albeit with some restrictions since 5-Ethynyl-dU is subject to base-catalyzed hydration during cleavage and deprotection. Hydration of an ethynyl group forms a methyl ketone which subsequently blocks potential click reactions. Mild deprotection conditions are necessary to prevent this side reaction.

In this article, we introduce TIPS-5-Ethynyl-dU-CE Phosphoramidite. This protected alkyne offers broader compatibility with oligonucleotide synthesis and deprotection. Protecting the 5-ethynyl group with a triisopropylsilyl (TIPS) protecting group prevents acid or base catalyzed hydration during oligonucleotide synthesis and workup. A simple fluoride treatment removes the TIPS protecting group.


Fluorescein Labelling – Considering the Options



Glen Research has a wide variety of products for fluorescein labelling and, in this article, we describe the pros and cons of our various options for 3’ and 5’ labelling. In order to take a close look at the performance of eight fluorescein products, we carried out a simple set of experiments designed to illustrate the strength and weakness of each product. All of our fluorescein products performed well in these tests. In particular, 6-Fluorescein phosphoramidite (10-1964) and CPG (20-2964) and 6-Fluorescein Serinol (10-1994) and CPG (20-2994) proved to be very strong performers as phosphoramidites and supports. However, it was clear that the thiourea linker derived from FITC in Fluorescein Phosphoramidite (10-1963) and CPG (20-2963) should not be used for any more complex experiments than simple 5' or 3' labelling.


AquaPhluor® 593 5'-Phosphoramidite and CPG



AquaPhluor® 593 (AP593) is stable to the conditions of oligonucleotide synthesis and deprotection and has properties that led us to believe that this fluorophore could be a good substitute for Texas Red®. It is a highly fluorescent molecule with an absorption maximum at 593nm and an emission maximum at 613nm. Its quantum yield is 0.6. The fluorescence of AquaPhluor® 593 is only weakly affected by pH, varying only a few percent in the range pH 5-8. In addition, the fluorescence of AquaPhluor® 593 only drops about 30% when heated from 20 °C to 95 °C.

We are happy to provide 5’-AquaPhluor® 593 Phosphoramidite and 3’-AquaPhluor® 593 CPG in collaboration with ELITechGroup.


Glen-Pak™ DNA 3mg 384-Well Plate


The recent introduction of DNA/RNA synthesizers using support-impregnated, 384-well filter plates has opened up new options for those desiring higher synthesis throughput. As was the case when 96-well systems first hit the market, customers have requested a way to seamlessly move from whole-plate cleavage and deprotection to DMT-ON, Glen-Pak purification. In response to this new demand, we are happy to introduce our highest throughput purification product yet, the Glen-Pak DNA 3mg 384-Well Plate.

The Glen-Pak DNA 3mg 384-Well Plate is designed for use with 384-well plate compatible vacuum manifold systems and can purify up to a 20 nmole scale synthesis. Each well contains 3mg of Glen-Pak DNA resin, which binds about 15 nmoles of full length 40-mer DMT-ON oligo.
