Abstract

Water soluble nucleic acid analogs were prepared by grafting adenine and thymine derivatives with homoserine onto polyethyleneimine. The analogs were found to form complementary polymer complexes with each other and with polynucleotides. The interactions were studied between these polymers, and with polynucleotides; polyuridylic acid (Poly U) and Polyadenylic acid (Poly A) in water.
