Recognition of CG inversions in DNA triple helices by methylated 3H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidin-2(7H)-one nucleoside analogues.
TLDR
Substituted 3H-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidin-2(7H)-one nucleoside analogues have been synthesised from 5-alkynyl-uridine derivatives and found to selectively bind CG inversions with enhanced affinity compared to T.
Design of 2′-phenylethynylpyrene excimer forming DNA/RNA probes for homogeneous SNP detection: The attachment manner matters
1-Phenylethynylpyrene fluorophore (1-PEPy) has long-wavelength shifted emission and higher photostability compared to pyrene, retaining, however, pyrene's ability to form excimers. Here we report the
Bicyclic 5-6 Systems: Three Heteroatoms 1:2
The literature of 5/6 fused ring systems with one heteroatom in the five-membered ring and two heteroatoms in the six-membered ring is reviewed. The period covered is from the beginning of 1994

TLDR
Three routes to regioisomerically pure 5- and 6-iodofluoresceins or 5-and- 6-bromofluorsceins are described and an approach to sulfonic acid derivatives 3 and 4 of 5-iodo isomers is shown.
BICYCLIC FURO PYRIMIDINE NUCLEOSIDES WITH ARYLOXYPHENYL AND HALOPHENYL SUBSTITUTED SIDE CHAINS AS POTENT AND SELECTIVE VARICELLA-ZOSTER VIRUS INHIBITORS
TLDR
A series of alkoxyphenyl compounds and two halophenyl derivatives were successfully synthesised and displayed anti-VZV activity at low μM concentrations.
BICYCLIC NUCLEOSIDE INHIBITORS OF VARICELLA-ZOSTER VIRUS (VZV): EFFECT OF TERMINAL UNSATURATION IN THE SIDE-CHAIN
TLDR
The synthesis of analogues with terminal unsaturation in the side-chain of bicyclic nucleoside inhibitors bearing long alkyl side-chains against VZV were found to be potent antivirals whereas the terminal alkynyls displayed poor activity.
Highly potent and selective inhibition of varicella-zoster virus by bicyclic furopyrimidine nucleosides bearing an aryl side chain.
TLDR
From a range of DNA and RNA viruses tested, only VZV was inhibited by these compounds indicating their extreme selectivity for this target virus.
A system for rapid DNA sequencing with fluorescent chain-terminating dideoxynucleotides.
TLDR
A DNA sequencing system based on the use of a novel set of four chain-terminating dideoxynucleotides, each carrying a different chemically tuned succinylfluorescein dye distinguished by its fluorescent emission, and the sequence analysis of M13 phage DNA made with this system is described.
