The versatility of PNA


Peptide nucleic acids (PNA) are synthetic molecules mimicking DNA/RNA, but the lack of a phosphate in their peptide backbone grants high binding affinity, chemical stability and selectivity. 

This white paper discusses:

    • The overall chemistry of PNAs, its hybridisation capability, and modifications.
    • The wide array of applications PNAs can be used for, from targeted gene therapy to gene expression to other molecular diagnostics.
