Oxanine (Oxa, O), one of the major damaged bases from guanine generated by NO- or HNO2-induced nitrosative deamination, has been considered as a mutagen-potent lesion. For exploring more detailed properties of Oxa, large-scale preparation of Oxa-containing oligodeoxynucleotide (Oxa-ODN) with the desired base sequence is a prerequisite. In the present study, we have developed a chemical synthesis procedure of Oxa-ODNs and characterized thermodynamic properties of Oxa in DNA strands. First, 2′-deoxynucleoside of Oxa (dOxo) obtained from 2′-deoxyguanosine by HNO2-nitrosation was subjected to 5′-O-selective tritylation to give 5′-O-(4,4′-dimethoxytrityl)-dOxo (DMT-dOxo) with a maximum yield of 70%. Subsequently, DMT-dOxo was treated with conventional phosphoramidation, which resulted in DMT-dOxo-amidite monomer with a maximum yield of 72.5%. The amidite obtained was used for synthesizing Oxa-ODNs: the coupling yields for Oxa incorporation were over 93%. The prepared Oxa-ODNs were employed for analyzing the thermodynamic properties of DNA duplexes containing base-matches of O:N [N; C (cytosine), T (thymine), G (guanine) or A (adenine)]. Melting temperatures (Tm) and thermodynamic stability (ΔG370) were found to be lower by 6.83∼13.41°C and 2.643∼6.047 kcal mol−1, respectively, compared with those of oligodeoxynucleotides, which had the same base sequence except that O:N was replaced by G:C (wild type). It has also been found that Oxa-pairing with cytosine shows relatively high stability in DNA duplex compared with other base combinations. The orders of ΔΔG370 were O:C > O:T > O:A > O:G. The chemical synthesis procedure and thermodynamic characteristics of Oxa-ODNs established here will be helpful for elucidating the biological significance of Oxa in relation to genotoxic and repair mechanisms.
