Cellular polynucleotides are alkylated by endogenous components, such as S-adenosylmethionine, or after reacting with two general classes of environmental and laboratory chemicals. SN1 chemical agents include alkylnitrosourea and N-alkyl-N-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine that react with the N7 position of guanine, N3 of adenine, O6 of guanine, O2 or O4 of pyrimidines, and the non-phosphodiester oxygen atoms of the phosphate backbone. In contrast, SN2 chemical agents such as methyl methanesulfonate and dimethyl sulfate react primarily with the N1 position of adenine (1-Methyl-2'-deoxyadenosine) and N3 of cytosine. To avoid chain branching during synthesis when using DCI as activator, N6-Me-dA is offered with acetyl protection.



  • Coupling: No changes needed from standard method recommended by synthesizer manufacturer.
  • Deprotection:

    Treat the CPG with 10% DBU in anhydrous methanol at Room Temperature for 5 days in the dark to cleave and deprotect the oligo.

    1) Prepare a solution of 10% DBU in anhydrous methanol. DBU (1,8-Diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene) is available from Aldrich (139009-25G) as is anhydrous methanol (322415-100ML). Note: 10% DBU in anhydrous methanol is not compatible with dmf-protecting groups.

    2) Transfer the CPG to a clean, dry glass vial and add 1 mL of the 10% DBU solution.

    3) Seal the vial and leave for 5 days in the dark at room temperature.

    4) Transfer the contents to a micro centrifuge tube and reduce under vacuum to a small volume.

    5) Add 1mL of 10mM aqueous sodium hydroxide solution and desalt or purify the oligonucleotide using standard procedures.

Diluent Anhydrous Acetonitrile
Storage Refrigerated storage, maximum of 2-8°C, dry
Stability 2-3 days
