Abstract [en]

This is a report focusing on further development of a synthetic catalyst for hydrolysis of the phosphate ester bonds in RNA. The main goal was to construct a catalyst based on a cyclodextrin ligand suitable for carrying a lanthanide metal with the induced capability to hydrolyse the stable phosphate ester bonds in RNA. This was achieved through a six-step synthesis resulting in a lanthanide-salen-cyclodextrin complex. For simplicity in the product analysis of the reaction, adenosine diribonucleotide (ApA) was used as a model substrate for RNA. The hydrolysis was performed at 20°C and ph7 to mimic physiological conditions in the human body. The results showed indications that it was possible to hydrolysis RNA by this kind of complex.
