Synthetic oligonucleotides with covalently-attached CDPI3 have enhanced DNA affinity and have improved the hybridization properties of sequence-specific DNA probes. Short CDPI3-oligonucleotides hybridize with single-stranded DNA to give more stable DNA duplexes than unmodified ODNs of similar length. The simplest approach to MGB probe design is to use an MGB support, add a quencher molecule as the first addition and complete the synthesis with a 5’-fluorophore. Alternatively, a fluorophore support could be used with the 5’ terminus containing a quencher molecule followed by a final MGB addition at the 5’ terminus. Glen Research offers 5’-CDPI3 MGB™ Phosphoramidite and 3’-CDPI3 MGB™ CPG.
