One, two, or three: An efficient, modular, and robust protocol has been developed for the multiple functionalization of DNA. It is based on the click reaction of azides with the alkyne substituents on an oligodeoxyribonucleotide (ODN), which was prepared by the standard phosphoramidite method (see scheme). ODNs can thus be labeled with two sensitive molecules, and even triple modification is possible.
