2-5A trimer [5'-monophosphoryladenylyl(2'-5')adenylyl(2'-5')adenosine] activates RNase L. While the 5'-terminal and 2'-terminal adenosine N(6)-amino groups play a key role in binding to and activation of RNase L, the exocyclic amino function of the second adenylate (from the 5'-terminus) plays a relatively minor role in 2-5A's biological activity.

To probe the available space proximal to the amino function of the central adenylate of 2-5A trimer during binding to RNase L, a variety of substituents were placed at that position. To accomplish this, the convertible building block 5'-O-dimethoxytrityl-3'-O-(tert-butyldimethylsilyl)-6-(2,4-dinitrophenyl)thioinosine 2'-(2-cyanoethylN,N-diisopropylphosphoramidite) was prepared as a synthon to introduce 6-(2,4-dinitrophenyl)thioinosine into the middle position of the 2-5A trimer during automated synthesis. Post-synthetic treatment with aqueous amines transformed the (2,4-dinitrophenyl)thioinosine into N(6)-substituted adenosines.

Assays of these modified trimers for their ability to bind and activate RNase L showed that activation activity could be retained, albeit with some sacrifice compared to unmodified p5'A2'p5'A2'p5'A.

Thus, the spatial domain about thisN(6)-amino function could be available for modifications to enhance the biological potency of 2-5A analogues and to ligate 2-5A to targeting vehicles such as antisense molecules.
