Abstract: Methods for the preparation of DNA duplexes containing interstrand covalent cross-links may facilitate research in the fields of biochemistry, molecular biology, nanotechnology, and materials science. Here we report methods for the synthesis and isolation of DNA duplexes containing a site-specific, chemically stable, reduced covalent interstrand cross-link between a guanine residue and an abasic site. The method uses experimental techniques and equipment that are common in most biochemical laboratories and inexpensive, commercially available oligonucleotides and reagents.
