Abstract: A method for the synthesis of oligonucleotide derivatives carrying an aliphatic amino group at the C-5-position of deoxyuridine is described. Hexanucleotides dU TCCCA and TdURCCCA, where R=CH2NH2 or CH2NHCOCH2CH2NH2 were prepared. The residue of N-(2-hydroxyethyl)phenazinium (Phn) was connected to the amino group of the oligonucleotides. The ability of the obtained hexanucleotides to complementary interaction was tested. It was shown that the stability of the formed duplexes depended on the spacer length.
