Peptide Nucleic Acids
MeSH HeadingPeptide Nucleic Acids
Tree NumberD13.695.578.424.550
Scope Note DNA analogs containing neutral amide backbone linkages composed of aminoethyl glycine units instead of the usual phosphodiester linkage of deoxyribose groups. Peptide nucleic acids have high biological stability and higher affinity for complementary DNA or RNA sequences than analogous DNA oligomers.
