For example, nucleoside analogs in which the furanose ring has been replaced by other heterocyclic rings such as isoxazoles, isoxazolines, or triazoles [4].
The term "Locked Nucleic Acids" was coined by Exiqon to emphasize that the usual conformational freedom of the furanose ring in standard nucleosides is restricted in LNA(TM) due to a methylene linker connecting the 2'-O position to the 4'-C position.
