Locked nucleic acid (LNA) enhances binding affinity of triazole-linked DNA towards RNA.
Kumar P., El-Sagheer AH., Truong L., Brown T.
Oligonucleotides containing internal triazole-3'-LNA linkages bind to complementary RNA with similar affinity and specificity to unmodified oligonucleotides, and significantly better than oligonucleotides containing triazole alone. In contrast LNA on the 5'-side of the triazole does not stabilise duplexes. Triazole-LNA confers great resistance towards enzymatic degradation relative to LNA alone.
