Cleavage conditions; 37°C, pH 7.6, 10 mM MgCl2. [Rz] = 1 μM, [S30] = 5 nM. (- = unmodified, ie 2'OH). F = 2'-fluoro, NH2 = 2'-amino, dT = 2'-deoxythymidine, dU = 2'-deoxyuridine, OMe = 2'-O-methyl, ps = 3' phosphorothioate linkage. Stability is defined as the time required in 10% human serum to degrade 75% of full-length ribozyme, relative to unmodified miniribozyme A.
