Formation of Stable DNA Loops by
Incorporation of Nonpolar, Non-HydrogenBonding Nucleoside Isosteres**
Xiao-Feng Ren, Barbara A. Schweitzer, Charles J. Sheils,
and Eric T. KooI*
Hairpin loops are ubiquitous structures found in folded RNA
and D N A sequences in nature. Recent reports have noted special stability for certain loop sequences. For example, RNA
tetranucleotide loops (tetraloops) having the sequence G N R A
and U U C G are more stable than other tetraloops and are highly
conserved in nature.[', D N A tetraloops having the sequence
GAAA, in certain contexts, are unusually stable in duplex
DNA;[31 in triplex structures the loop sequence CTTTG has
been reported to be especially stable as
In most or all of
these cases, structural study has either implicated or identified
intraloop hydrogen bonds between bases and/or phosphates as
important structural features. It has long been recognized. however, that hydrogen bonds in aqueous solution are weak. In this
regard a detailed study of hydrogen bonding in the GAAA
tetraloop in RNA concluded that single hydrogen bonds contribute relatively little to the overall stability.'" While less well
understood, base stacking is also known to be at least as important a contribution to nucleic acid stability as hydrogen bonding.16-'1 Studies of loop structures in R N A and D N A have not
generally addressed the relative importance of base stacking and
hydrogen bonding in stabilizing such loops.
We have undertaken a program to design and synthesize nonhydrogen-bonding nucleoside analogues to be used as probes of
the biological noncovalent interactions of oligonucleotides and
nucleic acids in general.['l We now describe the incorporation of
three such isosteres into D N A loops, and we have found that
such substitutions can lead to significant stabilization of doubleand triple-helical folded structures in DNA.
Nucleosides 1 (F), 2 (B), and 3 (D) were designed to act as
nearly perfect isosteres for the natural nucleosides thymidine (T)
and deoxyadenosine (A) (Fig. 1). However, in contrast to the
natural nucleosides, analogues 1-3 have little or no hydrogen
bonding capability.['] Compounds 1-3 are considerably more
hydrophobic and less polar than the natural structures, and
evidence from dangling-base studies in our laboratory indicate
lo] To test
that they are more efficient at base stacking as
the effects of their properties on folded D N A structures, we
incorporated 1-3 at loop positions into D N A hairpin-forming
sequences and evaluated the thermal and thermodynamic stabilities of the folded structures.
Nucleosides 1-3 were synthesized by using previously described methods.['] The primary products of coupling of the
bases of 1 and 2 with the a-chlorodeoxyribose toluoyl ester
synthon are a-anomers," I ] which were converted to /I-anomers
by acid-catalyzed epimerization." I b l Compounds I -3 were unknown previous to our reports, although two other substituted
indole nucleoside derivatives have recently been described."
The coupling of 1-3 in oligodeoxynucleotides using standard
phosphoramidite chemistry was efficient, with stepwise yields of
>95 o/o (trityl cation monitoring). For comparison we also syn[*] Prof. E. T. Kool, X.-F. Ren. B. A. Schweitzer. C. J. Sheils

studies carried out with natural bases in this
have shown
that the T,T case is intermediate in stability; the C,C loop is
the least stable and the G,G loop the most stable. The G,G loop
was found to be more stable than the T,T analogue by
1.5 kcal mol-‘.[41 Thus our F,F loop is more stable than all four
cases doubly substituted with the natural bases.
Previous studies have described the use of simple nonnucleotide linkers as loop replacements in nucleic acids.”51 Such
loops are often less stabilizing than natural nucleotide loops;
this may be due both to the greater rigidity of nucleotide loops
relative to the highly flexible nonnucleotide linkers and to favorable base stacking interactions in natural loops, which are missing in simple linkers. The nucleoside analogues in this study are
designed to stabilize nucleic acid helices as a result of both
rigidity and base stacking. In contrast to natural DNAs, loops
containing nucleosides 1-3 have the added advantage of being
resistant to degradation by nucleases (data not shown). In addition, such nonpolar nucleosides have been shown to pair with
low affinity and low specificity with natural sequences[9b1and
thus would not interfere with the expected pairing in biological
The present results on the incorporation of hydrophobic nucleoside analogues in oligonucleotide loops show that in general
these compounds are significantly stabilizing. Because they d o
not undergo measurable hydrogen bonding interaction^,"^^ it
would seem that the best explanation for this behavior is superior base stacking propensity. This suggests a general strategy for
stabilizing nucleic acid complexes containing loops: the use of
arenes instead of natural bases, especially at positions adjacent
to the helix, where stacking interactions are expected to make
the greatest contributions. Although the present compounds
cannot form stabilizing cross-loop hydrogen bonds, they may
have favorable hydrophobic or van der Waals interactions. Detailed structural and physical studies will be necessary to investigate the specific origins of this stability.

Conversion of nucleoside his-p-toluoyl esters of la, 2a t o phosphoramidite derivatives lc, 2c: The hydrolysis of the his-p-toluoyl esters, subsequent conversion to
5’-O-dimethoxytrityl derivatives, and 3’-O-phosphitylation in preparation for automated DNA synthesis were carried out by using the same methods previously
described for the I-isomers [9b]. Analytical data for these compounds were in
complete accord with their assigned structures 11 lb].
Oligonucleotide synthesis: DNA oligonucleotides were synthesized on an Applied
Biosystems 392 instrument by using standard p-cyanoethylphosphoramidite chemistry [16]. Methods for deprotection, tritylation, and phosphitylation of nucleosides
3a-c were as described previously [9b]. Oligomers were purified by preparative gel
electrophoresis with 20% denaturing polyacrylamide (detection at 260 nm) Molar
extinction coefficients for sequences containing the natural nucleosides were calculated by the nearest neighbor method [17]. The molar extinction coefficients measured for nucleosides l, 2, and 3 were 1200, 851. and 6361. respectively; molar
absorptivities for oligonucleotides containing these residues were derived as previously described [9b]. Oligodeoxynucleotides were obtained after purification as the
sodium salts. Intact incorporation of residues 1-3 was confirmed by synthesis of
short oligomers of sequence 5’-T-X-T (where X = 1,2. o r 3). The ‘ H N M R spectra
(500 MHz) indicated the presence of the intact aromatic ring structures with the
expected integration relative to thymine C-5 protons and methyl groups. Enzymatic
degradation analysis could not be performed because the nonniitural residues were
found to inhibit enzymatic cleavage.
Thermal denaturation studies: Buffers used for optical melting experiments were
100 mM NaCI, 10 mM Na-phosphate (for duplex hairpins) or 100 mM NaCI. 10 mM
MgCI,, 10 mM Na-PIPES (1,4-piperazine(hisethanesulfonate))(for triplexes). The
buffer pH is that of a 1 . 4 stock
solution at 25 ‘ C containing the buffer and salts.
After the solutions were prepared they were heated to 90 ‘C and allowed to cool
slowly to room temperature prior to the melting experiments.
The melting studies were carried out in Teflon-stoppered quartz cells (1 cm pathlength) under nitrogen atmosphere on a Varian Cary 1 UV/Vis spectophotometer
equipped with a thermoprogrammer. Absorbance was monitored at 260 nm while
temperature was increased at a rate of 0.5 ”Cmin-’ ; a slower heating rate with this
instrument does not affect the results. In all cases the complexes displayed sharp,
apparently two-state melting transitions. Melting temperatures ( Tm)were determined by computer fit of the first derivative of absorbance with respect t o l/T.
Uncertainty in individual T,, values is estimated at k0.5 K. Free energy values were
derived by computer-fitting the denaturation data with an algorithm employing
linear sloping baselines by using the two-stateapproximation for inelting[7]. Uncertainty i n individual free energy measurements is estimated at & 5 to 10%.

1,3-Didehydrobenzene (m-Benzyne)""
Ralph Marquardt, Wolfram Sander,* and Elfi Kraka*
Of the three isomeric didehydrobenzenes, only 1,2-didehydrobenzene (1) has been characterized unequivocally by direct
spectroscopic methods.['] The only derivative of 2 that has been
characterized by matrix IR spectroscopy is
Early reports on the
UV/Vis spectroscopic
characterization of 2
and 3 are questionable, since the reaction conditions and reported properties suggest that a more stable isomer, such as enediyne
4, was observed.
A barrier of only 19.8 kcalmol- was determined for the ring
opening of 3 by Roth et al.,I3]which compares well with barriers
of 19.4 and 20.5 kcalmol-' for this reaction calculated at the

that 2 also undergoes thermal ring opening to give 4 (Scheme 1).
