Triantennary N-acetyl galactosamine (GalNAc, GN3: ), a high-affinity ligand for the hepatocyte-specific asialoglycoprotein receptor (ASGPR), enhances the potency of second-generation gapmer antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) 6-10-fold in mouse liver. When combined with next-generation ASO designs comprised of short S-cEt (S-2'-O-Et-2',4'-bridged nucleic(More)
Incorporation of chemical modifications into small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) increases their metabolic stability and improves their tissue distribution. However, how these modifications impact interactions with Argonaute-2 (Ago2), the molecular target of siRNAs, is not known. Herein we present the crystal structure of human Ago2 bound to a metabolically(More)
