Structural characterization of LNA and alpha-L-LNA hybridized to RNA.

LNA and alpha-L-LNA are promising candidates for the development of efficient oligonucleotide-based therapeutic agents. Here, we present a short overview of the structural results we have obtained for LNA:RNA and alpha-L-LNA:RNA hybrids. Specifically, we have shown that LNA acts as an A-type mimic, while alpha-L-LNA acts as a B-type mimic when built into… CONTINUE READING
