A series of nucleotide-containing polyphenols has been synthesized by a simple, two-step enzymatic method. The binding properties of these synthetic polymers to complementary oligonucleotides have been evaluated using a commercially available oligo(dT)cellulose column. Complementary synthetic nucleosides were retained on this column to a greater extent than non-complementary synthetic nucleosides. These results suggest that the synthetic nucleosides prepared via this two-step enzymatic approach may have application as affinity matrices.
