Abstract

The adenine, cytosine and thymine peptide nucleic acid (PNA) monomers and PNA T10 oligomers bearing either a diacetylenic or stearoyl moiety at the N- or C-terminus have been successfully prepared. The resulting thymine monomeric and T10-mer derivatives have been subsequently incorporated into polydiacetylene-containing liposomes. © 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
