Four types of alkynyl C-nucleotide triphosphates were synthesized, in which heterocyclic compounds as a non-natural nucleobase were tethered to deoxyribose through acetylene bonds. The non-natural nucleobases are D*, T*, G*, and C*, corresponding to natural A, T, G, and C, respectively, from a hydrogen-bonding pattern of view. All the non-natural triphosphates were found to be a good substrate for terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT), a natural nucleic acid-relevant enzyme.
