Biodistribution of 68Ga-labelled phosphodiester, phosphorothioate, and 2'-O-methyl phosphodiester oligonucleotides in normal rats.

Antisense oligonucleotides may hybridise with high selectivity to mRNA sequences allowing monitoring of gene expression or inhibition of the manifestation of altered genes inducing diseases. As part of the development of positron emission tomography methods, 17-mer antisense phosphodiester (PO), phosphorothioate (PS) and 2'-O-methyl phosphodiester (OMe… CONTINUE READING
