Abstract
Cyclohexene nucleic acids (CeNA) were synthesized using classical phosporam idite chemistry. Incorporation of a cyclohexene nucleo-side in a DNA chain leads to an increase in stability of the DNA/RNA duplex. CeNA is stable aga inst degradation in serum. A CeNA/RNA hybrid is able to activate E. Coli RN ase H, resulting in cleavage of the RNA strand.
