It has previously been shown that the use of racemic mixtures of naturally chiral macromolecules such as protein and DNA can significantly aid the crystallogenesis process, thereby addressing one of the major bottlenecks to structure determination by X-ray crystallographic methods-that of crystal growth. Although previous studies have provided convincing evidence of the applicability of the racemic crystallization technique to DNA through the study of well-characterized DNA structures, we sought to apply this method to a historically challenging DNA sequence. For this purpose we chose a non-self-complementary DNA duplex containing the biologically-relevant Pribnow box consensus sequence 'TATAAT'. Four racemic crystal structures of this previously un-crystallizable DNA target are reported (with resolutions in the range of 1.65-2.3 Å), with further crystallographic studies and structural analysis providing insight into the racemic crystallization process as well as structural details of this highly pertinent DNA sequence. © 2016 The Author(s).

We have synthesized and studied the coupling properties of 3'-DMT-5'-CE phosphoramidites. The coupling efficiency per step surpasses 99% in the reverse-direction synthesis methodology, leading to high-purity RNA in a large number of 20- to 21-mers and long-chain oligonucleotides. Our data show that 5'→3' direction synthesis has a distinct advantage compared to the conventional method. As a result, this method of RNA synthesis is expected to be a very useful and practical method of choice for therapeutic-grade RNA. The phosphoramidites, Rev-A-n-bz, Rev-C-n-bz, Rev-C-n-ac, Rev-G-n-ac, and Rev-rU are routinely produced with an HPLC purity of greater than 98% and (31)P NMR purity greater than 99.5%. © 2011 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

The present invention provides building blocks and methods for synthesizing very pure RNA in a form that can efficiently be modified at the 3 end. Reverse RNA monomer phosphoramidites have been developed for RNA synthesis in 53 direction, leading to very clean oligo synthesis that allows for the introduction of various modifications at the 3-end cleanly and efficiently. Higher coupling efficiency per step have been observed during automated oligo synthesis with the reverse RNA amidites disclosed herein, resulting in a greater ability to achieve higher purity and produce very long oligonucleotides. The use of the reverse RNA phosphoramidites in the synthetic process of this invention leads to oligonucleotides free of N+1 species.
