Abstract [en]

We investigate the efficiency of incorporation of boranephosphonate-modified nucleotides by phi29 DNA poly, merase and present a simple method for forming large defined silver nanostructures by rolling circle amplification (RCA) using boranephosphonate internudeotide linkages. RCA is a linear DNA amplification technique that can use specifically circularized DNA probes for detection of target nucleic acids and proteins. The resulting product is a collapsed single-stranded DNA molecule with tandem repeats of the DNA probe. By substituting each of the natural nucleotides with the corresponding 5'-(alpha-P-borano)-deoxynudeosidetriphosphate, only a small reduction in amplification rate is observed. Also, by substituting all four natural nucleotides, it is possible to enzymatically synthesize a micrometensized, single-stranded DNA molecule with only boranephosphonate internucleotide linkages. Well-defined silver particles are then readily formed along the rolling circle product.
