Abstract

Locked Nucleic Acids (LNA) constitute a novel class of DNA analogues that have an exceptionally high affinity towards complementary DNA and RNA. Using human classical satellite-2 repeat sequence clusters as targets, we demonstrate that LNA/DNA mixmers oligonucleotides are excellent probes for FISH combining high binding affinity with short hybridization time and even with the ability to hybridize without prior thermal denaturation of the template.
