In fact, the physical and chemical properties of phosphorothioate oligonucleotides are independent of their specific sequences and are the primary determinants of the pharmacokinetic behavior of the molecules, so that preclinical data generated from one compound translate, in part, to the other compounds.

To avoid this, the researchers used oligonucleotides stripped of their negative charge or which had a positive charge attached.
Chemists start by synthesizing a short segment of nucleic acid called an oligonucleotide.
AVI's morpholino chemistry is particularly useful in modifying splicing of mRNA because oligonucleotides based on this chemistry do not degrade target RNA and do not lead to down-regulation of the target gene.
