A recent development has been the use of a support based on a molecule which is “conformationally preorganized” to accelerate the dephosphorylation reaction.1,2 By using a rigid bicyclic molecule on the support, the rate of elimination is markedly faster than the original Universal Support. The structure of Glen UnySupport™ is shown below. The N-phenyl version, developed at Isis Pharmaceuticals as UnyLinker™, is available from several companies for large scale oligo synthesis. Glen UnySupport is the N-methyl version, which is preferred for high throughput oligonucleotide synthesis since methylamine rather than aniline is formed on deprotection. We are happy to offer Glen UnySupport in a variety of popular formats under license from Ionis Pharmaceuticals.
