Certain amino acids and short peptides are known to act as enhancers of ribozyme-mediated RNA cleavage at low concentration of magnesium ion. Thus, covalent conjugates of oligonucleotides and some amino acids may have a potential for development as sequence-specific artificial ribonucleases. Here we would like to report an incorporation of basic amino acids, lysine and histidine, into oligonucleotides at the 2'-position of a uridine residue. The approach involves the 2'-O-alkylation and attachment of the corresponding amino acid by the alpha-amino group through a urethane-type linker.
