2-Amino Purine (2-AP) is a fluorescent molecule that is classified as an adenine and guanine analog, and thus can pair with both thymine and cytosine bases (1,2). It is an attractive choice for use as a probe in nucleic acid secondary structural studies, both because its fluorescence is highly sensitive to the nature of the local environment, and because it usually does not significantly affect duplex stability (3). Examples include the hairpin-loop structure of the (CAG)8 repeat, involved in several neurodegenerative disorders 2-AP substituted for A (4), the G-quadruplex telomeric structure [AGGG(TTAGGG)3] 2-AP substitute for A (5). 2-AP also has been used to characterize the effects of DNA mismatch repair on mutagenesis induced by several different nucleoside analogs (6).
