SIR2 is a key regulator of the aging process in many model organisms. The human ortholog SIRT1 plays a pivotal role in the regulation of cellular differentiation, metabolism, cell cycle, and apoptosis. SIRT1 is an NAD(+)-dependent deacetylase, and its enzymatic activity may be regulated by cellular energy. There is a growing number of known SIRT1 substrates(More)
We synthesized reversible terminators with tethered inhibitors for next-generation sequencing. These were efficiently incorporated with high fidelity while preventing incorporation of additional nucleotides, and we used them to sequence canine bacterial artificial chromosomes in a single-molecule system that provided even coverage for over 99% of the region(More)
While the strong biotin-avidin interaction has been widely used for the detection of biomolecules, its irreversibility complicates their isolation. We report the synthesis of a photocleavable biotin derivative (PCB) which eliminates many limitations of existing methods. This reagent contains a biotin moiety linked through a spacer arm to a photocleavable(More)
We have explored a novel strategy for controlling the infectivity of adenoviral vectors. This strategy involves a method whereby the infectivity of adenoviral vectors is neutralized by treatment of viral particles with a water-soluble, photocleavable biotinylation reagent. These modified viral vectors possess little to no infectivity for target cells.(More)
We report the design and evaluation of two non-nucleosidic photocleavable aminotag phosphor-amidites. These reagents introduce a photocleavable amino group on the 5'-terminal phosphate of synthetic oligonucleotides. The 5' photocleavable amino group enables introduction of a variety of amine-reactive markers onto synthetic oligonucleotides as well as(More)
We report the design, synthesis and evaluation of a non-nucleosidic photocleavable biotin phosphoramidite (PCB-phosphoramidite) which provides a simple method for purification and phosphorylation of oligonucleotides. This reagent introduces a photocleavable biotin label (PCB) on the 5'-terminal phosphate of synthetic oligonucleotides and is fully compatible(More)
The synthesis and characterization of photocleavable peptide-DNA conjugates is described along with their use as photocleavable mass marker (PCMM) hybridization probes for the detection of target DNA sequences by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry. Three photocleavable peptide-DNA conjugates were synthesized, purified, and(More)
Oligonucleotides containing a photocleavable biotin (5'-PC-biotin) were analyzed by matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS) with wavelengths in the ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) from solution and after capture on streptavidin-coated agarose or magnetic beads. The analysis was used to monitor the release of the(More)
Riboflavin was transformed within six steps into 3-isobutyryl-7,8-dimethyl-10-[2-O-(beta-cyanoethoxy-N,N- diisopropylaminophosphinyl)ethyl]isoalloxazine. This new fluorescent reagent was applied for direct phosphitylation of 5-OH function of protected oligonucleotide assembled on controlled-pore glass support by beta-cyanoethyl phosphoramidite chemistry. As(More)
