The phosphoramidite (1S,3R,4S)-3-(2-cyanoethoxy(diisopropylamino)phosphinoxymethyl) -5-N-(4-monomethoxytrityl)-1-(uracil-1-yl)-5-aza-2-oxabicyclo[2.2.1]heptane 18 of a novel bicyclic nucleoside structure was synthesized from the known 1-(3'-deoxy-ß-D-psicofuranosyl)uracil 3. Conformational analysis of its structure verified its expected S-type furanose conformation, and the secondary amino group in the 4'-position allowed for incorporation into oligonucleotides using 5' ? 3' directed oligonucleotide synthesis as previously described for phosphoramidates. Thermal denaturation studies showed rather large decreases in duplex stabilities of -4.3 and -2.7 °C per modification toward complementary DNA and RNA, respectively.
