A novel series of charge-modified, dye-labeled 2',3'-dideoxynucleoside-triphosphate terminators were synthesized and evaluated as reagents for DNA sequencing. These terminators possess an advantage over existing reagents in that no purification is required to remove unreacted nucleotide or associated breakdown products prior to electrophoretic separation of(More)
A series of charge-modified, dye-labeled 2', 3'-dideoxynucleoside-5'-triphosphates have been synthesized and evaluated as reagents for dye-terminator DNA sequencing. Unlike the commonly used dye-labeled terminators, these terminators possess a net positive charge and migrate in the opposite direction to dye-labeled Sanger fragments during electrophoresis.(More)
Dipivaloyl-5-carboxyfluorescein N-hydroxysuccinimidyl ester 1 and 5-propargylamino-2',3'-dideoxyuridine triphosphate 5 were modified with maleimide, haloacetamide, and sulfhydryl reactive functional groups to participate in cross-conjugation reactions via sulfide bonds to generate fluorescently labeled, thioether cross-conjugated terminators 10 and 11.(More)
Fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) dye labeled cassettes and terminators with one or more donor dyes (fluorescein) and acceptor dye (rhodamine dyes) with benzofuran or tyrosine linker moieties were synthesized. These terminators were evaluated for their energy transfer and DNA sequencing potential using thermostable DNA polymerase.
Antibodies with pH-dependent binding to both target antigens and neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn) provide an alternative tool to conventional neutralizing antibodies, particularly for therapies where reduction in antigen level is challenging due to high target burden. However, the requirements for optimal binding kinetic framework and extent of pH dependence for(More)
