Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A new method of adding fluorescent labels to the middle of oligonucleotides is reported. Diets-Alder cycloaddition was used to add five fluorescent maleimides to an oligonucleotide containing a 2'-deoxyuridine modified at the 5-position with a spaced furan. This is a new approach to internal oligonucleotide chemistry that opens Lip a large range of possibilities for further conjugation.
