Finally steps in escort aptamer preparation include man-made improvement of the truncated aptamer

Further nuclease stabilization is achieved by substitution of 2?-OCHstep three for 2?-OH at purine positions. As the 2?-OCH3 moiety is not compatible with current SELEX process enzymes, this alteration must occur during chemical synthesis following evolution of a specific aptamer sequence. Generally, most of the 2?-OH purines can be substituted without loss of...
