Nucleic acids that change their properties upon photo-irradiation could be powerful materials for molecular sensing with high spatiotemporal resolution. Recently, we reported a photo-isomeric nucleoside bearing azobenzene at the C5 position of 2'-deoxyuridine (dU Az ), whose hybridization ability could be reversibly controlled by the appropriate wavelength of light. In this paper, we synthesized and evaluated dU Az analogues that have various para-substitutions on the azobenzene moiety.doi:10.3390/chemosensors3020036 fatcat:zyn34jnyxnbkljuxk6usokori4
