- The copper-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition reaction has been used for the template-mediated chemical ligation of two oligonucleotide strands, one with a 5'-alkyne and the other with a 3'-azide, to produce a DNA strand with an unnatural backbone at the ligation point. A template-free click-ligation reaction has been used for the intramolecular circularization of a single stranded oligonucleotide which was used as a template for the synthesis of a covalently closed DNA catenane.
