8-Amino-deoxyGuanosine (8-Amino-dG) is an 8-amino-purine that is most commonly used to study the structural and functional properties of triple helices. The 8-amino group is able to form an additional Hoogsteen purine-pyrimidine hydrogen bond, which serves to increase triple helix stability (1). 8-Amino-dG-modified oligonucleotides are also used in oxidative DNA damage/repair studies. The industrial solvent 2-nitropropane generates 8-Amino-dG as a DNA lesion, which in this initial study appears to be weakly mutagenic (2).
