Dendrimeric compounds were conjugated to oligonucleotides in order to improve their cellular uptake. Second and third generation lipophilic dendrimers were covalently attached either to the 5'- or 3'- end of oligonucleotides. Thermal denaturation experiments showed that the attachment of a third generation dendrimer leads to a substantial decrease in binding affinity. The considerably smaller second-generation dendrimers, however, are well tolerated. Fluorescence measurements revealed that the presence of a second-generation dendrimer leads to a marked increase in the cellular uptake of oligonucleotides. (EN)
