possible reaction for attaching adamantane to 5 prime end of DNA
So don't get me confused with ANY kind of chemist, but I've put together a nice little reaction here for attaching adamantane to a strand of DNA. And I apologize for not providing the usual sexy pictures (I wrote sexy pictures to try to increase my google rank. I totally got that idea from Damian who used "ecstasy" as a keyword in a post<- see what I did there?), but I understand that the above representation is closer to what shows up in journals, not that I'm too worried about that.
and thanks for the comments, Guy. Thoughts on this?
What's the next step? Do some ab initio calculations to try and determine positive reactivity?
