This strategy generates only the desired 20 -O-alkylated isomers of precious modified compounds and is required for modifications that are not stable under the conditions for installation of the TOM protecting group. The majority of reported syntheses followed one of these two general routes. In principle, alternative synthetic approaches are conceivable and the exact sequence of synthesis steps is largely depending on the chemical stability of the targeted nucleobase modification. 3 (a) General routes for the synthesis of nucleobase-modified 20 -O-TOM-protected phosphoramidites.

A combination of the convertible nucleoside approach and thiol-specific RNA labeling together with enzymatic ligation was applied for engineering of pre-mRNA and snRNA constructs [130,131]. In these studies, a site-specifically attached hydroxyl radical probe (Fe-BABE) was used to investigate the architecture of early spliceosomal complexes. A recent addition to the repertoire of available methods for covalent ligation of RNA fragments comes from the in vitro selection of deoxyribozymes. Silverman and co-workers reported practically useful DNA catalysts for the ligation of a 50 -triphosphate RNA donor substrate to the 30 -hydroxyl group of a second RNA fragment [132,133].
