C-5 methylated pyrimidine deoxynucleosides are known to form more stable duplexes and triplexes than their corresponding pyrimidine derivatives.
Consequently, thymidine and 5-methyl-2’-deoxyCytidine (5-Me-dC) form more stable complexes than 2’-deoxyUridine and 2’-deoxyCytidine (dC).

Storage & stability
- Spin the tube briefly to collect the pellet in the bottom of the tube - Add an appropriate volume of recommended buffer (refer to technical data sheet) - Allow the tube to stand a few minutes - Vortex the tube for 15 seconds
Dried Oligonucleotides are stable for 18 months at ambiant temperature. Oligonucleotides in solutions are stable for 24 months at -20°C. (Tolerance -20°C± 5°C. ) For more information please refer to the Reconstitution-Storage-Stability page
