Amino-Modifier C6 dC

CAS Number:
Catalog: Make Selections to Reveal


Sequence Modifiers are designed for use in automated synthesis. The carboxy-dT is hydrolyzed during deprotection and can be coupled directly to a molecule containing a primary amino group by a standard peptide coupling or via the intermediate N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS) ester. Amino-Modifier dA, Amino-Modifier dC, N2-Amino-Modifier dG and both Amino-Modifier dT products can be added in place of a dA, dC, dG and dT residue, respectively, during oligonucleotide synthesis. Corresponding Amino-Modifier supports can replace their respective deoxynucleoside supports. After deprotection, the primary amine on the C6 analogues is separated from the oligonucleotide by a spacer arm with a total of 7 -10 atoms and can be labelled or attached to an enzyme. The C2 analogue is more suitable for the attachment of molecules designed to react with the oligonucleotide.



  • Coupling: Amino-Modifier C6 dC reacts in a manner identical to normal phosphoramidites. To prevent side reactions, synthesize using acetyl-protected dC. See Deprotection for futher details.
  • Deprotection: No changes needed from standard method recommended by synthesizer manufacturer. The TFA protecting group is removed during standard ammonium hydroxide deprotection. A minor side reaction during ammonia deprotection can lead to irreversibly capping 2-5% of the amine. This could be significant if multiple additions of the modifier are made. To prevent the reaction, synthesize using acetyl-protected dC and deprotect in 30% ammonia/40% methylamine 1:1 (AMA) at 65°C for 15 minutes.
