Abstract

The synthesis of the 5'-Se-derivatized thymidine and phosphoramidite is reported, and the Se-phosphoramidite was incorporated into DNA. Because of its high nucleophilicity, this 5'-Se-moiety permits convenient postsynthetic modification of oligonucleotides. The proof of principle was successfully demonstrated by incorporating fluorescein into DNA. It was also found that the 5'-dye-labeled Se-DNA can be recognized by DNA polymerase as an efficient primer. This novel strategy opens a new avenue for nucleic acid probe preparation and detection.
