Here we describe uridine functionalization in the 5’ position which provided new classes of cationic and non-ionic amphiphiles specifically designed to interact with DNA as transfection agents. The synthetic procedures developed to obtain the cationic uridine-head surfactants prevented intramolecular cyclization which occurs when uridine is functionalized in this position without using protecting groups in the uracil.

Abstract

Here we describe uridine functionalization in the 5’ position which provided new classes of cationic and non-ionic amphiphiles specifically designed to interact with DNA as transfection agents. The synthetic procedures developed to obtain the cationic uridine-head surfactants prevented intramolecular cyclization which occurs when uridine is functionalized in this position without using protecting groups in the uracil.
