Pyrrolo-dC is a fluorescent deoxycytidine analog that is an ideal probe of DNA structure and dynamics. It base-pairs as a normal dC nucleotide. An oligo fully substituted with pyrrolo-dC has the same Tm as the control dC oligo with the same specificity for dG. Its small size does not perturb the structure of the DNA helix and it is well tolerated by a number of DNA and RNA polymerases. It is highly fluorescent and its excitation and emission are well to the red of most fluorescent nucleotide analogs, which eliminates or reduces background fluorescence from proteins. Pyrrolo-dCTP has potential uses in biological assay development.
Coupling: Standard Coupling time. Use 0.02 M Iodine for Oxidation. Note: Use 0.5 M CSO in anhydrous ACN (40-4632-xx) and a 3 minute oxidation time for best results with multiple additions.
Deprotection: Ammonium Hydroxide for 24 hours at room temperature.
Refrigerated storage, maximum of 2-8°C, dry
