Four phosphoramidite monomers were prepared for use in solid phase oligodeoxynucleotide synthesis.  Each monomer held the florescence quencher molecule (2-(4-dimethylamino-phenlazo)-benzoic acid (methyl red) with attachment by aminoalkyl pendant arms.  The monomer 1-α-O-[(2-(dimethylamino-phenylazo)-benzoyl)-6-aminohexyl]-5’-O-(5-bis(4-methoxyphenyl)-phenylmethyl-2-doxy-D-ribose-3’-(2-cyanoethyl-N,N-diisopropyl-phosphoramidite) was prepared in 9 steps with an overall yield of 10% and was tested in solid phase oligodeoxynucleotide synthesis giving coupling efficiencies of 96%. The monomer 4-(di-n-butylamino-methyleneamino)-7-(O-(5-bis-(4-methoxyphenyl)-phenylmethyl)-O-[3-(2-cyanoethyl-N,N-diisopropyl)-phosphoramidite)]-2-deoxy-β-D-ribosyl)-5-(3-N-(4-dimethylamino-phenylazo-benazmido)-prop-2-ynyl)-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine was synthesised in 14 steps with an overall yield of 0.9%.  Molecular beacon studies using oligodeoxynucleotides containing these monomers showed the required fluorogenic responses.

Abstract

Four phosphoramidite monomers were prepared for use in solid phase oligodeoxynucleotide synthesis.  Each monomer held the florescence quencher molecule (2-(4-dimethylamino-phenlazo)-benzoic acid (methyl red) with attachment by aminoalkyl pendant arms.  The monomer 1-α-O-[(2-(dimethylamino-phenylazo)-benzoyl)-6-aminohexyl]-5’-O-(5-bis(4-methoxyphenyl)-phenylmethyl-2-doxy-D-ribose-3’-(2-cyanoethyl-N,N-diisopropyl-phosphoramidite) was prepared in 9 steps with an overall yield of 10% and was tested in solid phase oligodeoxynucleotide synthesis giving coupling efficiencies of 96%. The monomer 4-(di-n-butylamino-methyleneamino)-7-(O-(5-bis-(4-methoxyphenyl)-phenylmethyl)-O-[3-(2-cyanoethyl-N,N-diisopropyl)-phosphoramidite)]-2-deoxy-β-D-ribosyl)-5-(3-N-(4-dimethylamino-phenylazo-benazmido)-prop-2-ynyl)-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine was synthesised in 14 steps with an overall yield of 0.9%.  Molecular beacon studies using oligodeoxynucleotides containing these monomers showed the required fluorogenic responses.

Two further major groove monomers were synthesised. 4-(Di-n-butylamino-methyleneamino)-7-(O-5-bis(4-methyoxyphenyl)-phenylmethyl)-2-deoxy-β-D-ribosyl-O-3-(2-cyanoethyl-N,N-diisopropyl-phosphoramidite)-5-(6-(2-(dimethylamino-phenylazo)-benzoyl)-prop-2-ynyl-hexanamido)-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidine was synthesised in 0.73% yield over 12 steps.  7-[O-(5-Bis-(4-methoxyphenyl)-phenylmethyl-2-deoxy-β-Di-ribosyl-O-3-(2-cyanoethyl-N,N-diisopropyl-phosphoramidite))]-5-(6-(2-(dimethylamino-phenylazo)-prop-2-ynyl-hexanamido)-pyrrolo[2,3-d]pyrimidin-5-one was synthesised in 0.50% yield over 12 steps.
