A nucleoside is composed of a nitrogenous base and a five-carbon sugar (ribose or deoxyribose), which can be thought as a nucleotide without a phosphate group. The nitrogenous base is bond to the pentose via a beta-glycosidic linkage. Examples of nucleosides include cytidine, uridine, adenosine, guanosine, thymidine and inosine. Nucleosides are the basic building blocks of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) that play a significant role in genetic information expression.
BOC Sciences is a leading biotechnology company which has years of professional and abundant experience in providing nucleoside synthesis service for customers all over the world. BOC Sciences’s sophisticated equipments, advanced technologies and highly experienced staffs are available to provide you a full spectrum of high quality specialty nucleoside synthesis service. We can provide a large variety of synthesis scales, modifications and purifications to satisfy your various needs, including sequencing, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), hybridization studies, site directed mutagenesis, microarray experiments, etc. For example, a variety of different nucleosides or modified structures, other than the naturally occurring 2’-deoxyribose and ribose based nucleosides, have been developed to enhance or alter the natural properties of nucleic acids. Many of these modifications are commercially available as ready-to-use phosphoramidite reagents, but some can only be included if special arrangements with the IP holders are made to supply us with the required materials. At BOC Sciences, we also offer nucleosides in stock products including fluorescent nucleosides, antimetabolic nucleosides, cancer and proliferation marker nucleosides. In conclusion, our advantages are as following but not limited:
