Four types of polyacrylamide or polydimethyl-acrylamide gels for regioselective (by immobilization at the 3' end) of short oligonucleotides have been designed for use in manufacturing oligonucleotide microchips. Two of these supports contain amino or aldehyde groups in the gel, allowing coupling with oligonucleotides bearing aldehyde or amino groups,(More)
A 14 nt DNA sequence 5'-AGAATGTGGCAAAG-3' from the zinc finger repeat of the human KRAB zinc finger protein gene ZNF91 bearing the intercalator 2-methoxy,6-chloro,9-amino acridine (Acr) attached to the sugar-phosphate backbone in various positions has been shown to form a specific triple helix (triplex) with a 16 bp hairpin (intramolecular) or a(More)
Intramolecular triple helices have been obtained by folding back twice oligonucleotides formed by decamers bound by non-nucleotide linkers: dA10-linker-dA10-linker-dT10 and dA10-linker-dT10-linker-dA10. We have thus prepared two triple helices with forced third strand orientation, respectively antiparallel (apA*A-T) and parallel (pA*A-T) with respect to the(More)
Triplex-directed DNA recognition is strictly limited by polypurine sequences. In an attempt to address this problem with synthetic biology tools, we designed a panel of short chimeric α,β-triplex-forming oligonucleotides (TFOs) and studied their interaction with fluorescently labelled duplex hairpins using various techniques. The hybridization of hairpin(More)
