Oligodeoxynucleotides bearing bulky adducts at guanine N2 have been prepared by a postoligomerization strategy in which oligonucleotides containing a highly reactive O2-trifluoromethanesulfonyl-O6-(p- nitrophenethyl) 2'-deoxyxanthosine residue were reacted with (±)-10β-amino- 7,8,9,10-tetrahydro-benzo [a]pyrene-7β,8α,9α-triol and related compounds.
