Drug Stability Service
Nucleic acid drugs face the challenge of stability in their application. SiRNA is easily degraded by ribozymes in serum when exposed to blood, resulting in a very short half-life in serum. SiRNA is composed of positive and antisense double strand, which is easy to be unspun in vivo. Due to its rich phosphate diester group, siRNA is surrounded by negative charge, so it is difficult for siRNA to pass through the cell membrane. The strong hydrophilicity caused by charge density makes siRNA difficult to interact with albumin and other endogenous proteins in serum, resulting in rapid immune degradation. Natural nucleic acids have only a limited tissue distribution. SiRNA has off-target effect. In the research and development of nucleic acid drugs, the modification of nucleic acid must be broken through in order to improve the stability of nucleic acid drugs and enable them to be successfully applied. Creative Biolabs provides modified design and synthesis services to enhance the stability of nucleic acid drugs.
Creative Biolabs provides solutions for optimization of nucleic acid drugs, including modification of stability and synthesis of nucleic acid drugs service. Creative Biolabs has an advanced and comprehensive laboratory platform and experienced laboratory staff to help customers accelerate the process of nucleic acid drug discovery.
We provide but are not limited to:
- Sugar ring modification. Sugar ring modification is a widely used method of siRNA modification. Type A double helix is essential for siRNA activity, and the role of 2'-OH is not required. Creative Biolabs can assist customers with 2'-O-ME modification, which has good compatibility and can enhance RNA affinity and ribozyme stability.
- The 2'-O-ME modification works best when blunt-ended duplexes are included.
- A variety of properties including strong affinity, ribozyme stability and interfering activity can be optimized by introducing 2'-O-DNP modification into 70% 2'-OH of siRNA double stranded.
- 2'F-RNA is one of the best modified structures. Partial 2'F-RNA modifications can be contained by both positive and anti-sense strands of siRNA, while some siRNA modifications that are all 2'F-RNA modifications are also active. The 2'F-RNA modification significantly increase the serum stability of siRNA and improve the double stranded affinity.
- Phosphor ester chain modification. Some modifications to phosphodiester chains are compatible with RNA interference mechanisms. The ribozyme stability of siRNA modified by borane phosphate is better than that of natural siRNA.
- Double chain structure modification. Small intermally segmented interfering RNA consists of three strands, including a complete antisense strand and two 9-13 nt sense sequences. Compared with traditional siRNA, small intermally segmented interfering RNA has better silencing activity and lower off-target effect.
