Abstract

This review examines acyclic nucleoside analogs as therapeutic agents, potential progenitor candidates to RNA, and novel building blocks for nucleic-acid nanotechnology. Together, these areas of research provide new insights into the structural and functional properties of nucleic acids and suggest new paradigms for nucleic acid self-assembly.
