STATEMENT OF GOVERNMENT INTERESTS

This invention was made with government support under grant numbers

RM1HG008525 and R01MH103910 awarded by National Institutes of Health. The government has certain rights in the invention.

FIELD

The present invention relates in general to methods of making polynucleotides with cleavable nucleotide analogs.

BACKGROUND

With the rapid development of new generations of sequencing technology, reversible terminators have been developed as substrates for DNA polymerases in DNA sequencing methods such as DNA sequencing by synthesis. Reversible termination sequencing is one of the sequencing by synthesis strategies that uses modified nucleotide analogs to terminate primer extension reversibly. There are in general two types of reversible terminators based on the different reversible blocking groups. The first type is 3'-0-blocked reversible terminators where the reversible terminating group is linked to the oxygen atom of the 3' -OH of the pentose and the fluorescent moiety being cleavably linked to the base of the nucleotide molecule. The cleavable fluorescent moiety acts as a reporter. The second type is 3 '-unblocked reversible terminators where the reversible terminating group and the fluorescent moiety are linked to the base of the nucleotide molecule. The fluorescent moiety functions as a reporter and as part of the reversible terminating group for termination of the primer extension (See, e.g., Fei Chen, et al., The History and Advances of Reversible Terminators Used in New Generations of Sequencing Technology, Genomics Proteomics Bioinformatics, 2013, Vol. 11, pages 34-40, hereby incorporated by reference in its entirety). There is a continuing need in the art to improve and facilitate DNA synthesis with other nucleotide analogs.

The cleavable moiety is linked to the oxygen atom of the 3' -OH of the pentose of the nucleotide molecule.

According to another aspect, the present disclosure provides methods of making polynucleotides using the cleavable nucleotide analogs. In certain embodiments, template independent polymerases are used in the methods of making polynucleotides.

Nucleic Acids and Nucleotides

As used herein, the terms "nucleic acid molecule," "nucleic acid sequence," "nucleic acid fragment" and "oligomer" are used interchangeably and are intended to include, but are not limited to, a polymeric form of nucleotides that may have various lengths, including either deoxyribonucleotides or ribonucleotides, or analogs thereof.

An oligonucleotide is typically composed of a specific sequence of four nucleotide bases: adenine (A); cytosine (C); guanine (G); and thymine (T) (uracil (U) for thymine (T) when the polynucleotide is RNA). According to certain aspects, deoxynucleotide triphosphates (dNTPs, such as dATP, dCTP, dGTP, dTTP) may be used. According to certain aspects, ribonucleotide triphosphates (rNTPs, such as rATP, rCTP, rGTP, rUTP) may be used. According to certain aspects, ribonucleotide diphosphates (rNDPs) may be used.

The term "oligonucleotide sequence" or simply "sequence" is the alphabetical representation of a polynucleotide molecule; alternatively, the term may be applied to the polynucleotide molecule itself. This alphabetical representation can be input into databases in a computer having a central processing unit and used for bioinformatics applications such as functional genomics and homology searching. Oligonucleotides may optionally include one or more non-standard nucleotide(s), nucleotide analog(s) and/or modified nucleotides. The present disclosure contemplates any deoxyribonucleotide or ribonucleotide and chemical variants thereof, such as methylated, hydroxymethylated or glycosylated forms of the bases, and the like. Natural nucleotides lack chain terminating moieties. According to another aspect, the methods of making the nucleic acids described herein use reversibly chain terminating nucleic acids, also known as reversible terminators to those of skill in the art.

As used herein the term nucleotide means a ribose or deoxyribose sugar having nucleobase attached at the 2' carbon. As used herein the term 'nucleobase' means a nucleotide base. Nucleobases are typically attached by a glycosidic bond to a pentose sugar ring, such as ribose, or deoxyribose at the 2' position. Exemplary nucleobases include adenine (A); cytosine (C); guanine (G); thymine (T); and uracil (U) or chemical variants thereof. The present disclosure contemplates any deoxyribonucleotide or ribonucleotide and chemical variants thereof, such as methylated, hydroxymethylated or glycosylated forms of the nucleobases, and their polyphosphate derivatives. In certain aspects, deoxynucleotide polyphosphates such derivatives of deoxynucleotide triphosphates, dNTPs, such as dATP, dCTP, dGTP, or dTTP, may be used.

Examples of modified nucleobases include, but are not limited to diaminopurine, S2T, 5-fluorouracil, 5-bromouracil, 5-chlorouracil, 5-iodouracil, hypoxanthine, xantine, 4- acetylcytosine, 5-(carboxyhydroxylmethyl)uracil, 5-carboxymethylaminomethyl-2- thiouridine, 5-carboxymethylaminomethyluracil, dihydrouracil, beta-D-galactosylqueosine, inosine, N6-isopentenyl adenine, 1 -methyl guanine, 1-methylinosine, 2,2-dimethyl guanine, 2- methyladenine, 2-methylguanine, 3 -methyl cytosine, 5 -methyl cytosine, N6-adenine, 7- methylguanine, 5-methylaminomethyluracil, 5-methoxyaminomethyl-2-thiouracil, beta-D- mannosylqueosine, 5'-methoxycarboxymethyluracil, 5-methoxyuracil, 2-methylthio-D46- isopentenyladenine, uracil-5-oxyacetic acid (v), wybutoxosine, pseudouracil, queosine, 2- thiocytosine, 5-methyl-2-thiouracil, 2-thiouracil, 4-thiouracil, 5-methyluracil, uracil-5- oxyacetic acid methylester, uracil-5-oxyacetic acid (v), 5-methyl-2-thiouracil, 3-(3-amino-3- N-2-carboxypropyl) uracil, (acp3)w, 2,6-diaminopurine and the like. Nucleic acid molecules may also be modified at the base moiety (e.g., at one or more atoms that typically are available to form a hydrogen bond with a complementary nucleotide and/or at one or more atoms that are not typically capable of forming a hydrogen bond with a complementary nucleotide), sugar moiety or phosphate backbone.

Modified nucleotide mono, di, tri phosphates and their synthesis methods have been described (Roy, B., Depaix, A., Perigaud, C, & Peyrottes, S, (2016), Recent Trends in Nucleotide Synthesis. Chemical Reviews, 116(14), 7854-7897), which is hereby incorporated by reference in its entirety.

Polymerases

According to certain embodiments of the present disclosure, polymerases are used to make polynucleotides with selected cleavable nucleotide analogs. The polynucleotides contain information which is referred to herein as being recorded or stored in the polynucleotide sequence. Polymerases are enzymes that produce a polynucleotide or nucleic acid sequence, for example, using DNA or RNA as a template. Polymerases that produce RNA polymers are known as RNA polymerases, while polymerases that produce DNA polymers are known as DNA polymerases. Polymerases that incorporate errors are known in the art and are referred to herein as "error-prone polymerases". Template independent polymerases may be error prone polymerases. Using an error-prone polymerase allows the incorporation of specific bases at precise locations of the DNA molecule. Error-prone polymerases will either accept a nonstandard base, such as a reversible chain terminating base, or will incorporate a different nucleotide, such as a nucleotide analog, a natural or unmodified nucleotide that is selectively provided during primer extension.

Template independent polymerases

As used herein, template-independent polymerases, refer to polymerase enzymes which catalyze extension of polynucleotide primer strand with nucleotides in the absence of a polynucleotide template. Template independent polymerases where the polynucleotide primer is DNA are known as template independent DNA polymerases. Template independent polymerases where the polynucleotide primer is RNA are known as template independent RNA polymerases. Template independent polymerases may accept a broad range of nucleotide polyphosphate substrates. Template independent DNA polymerase are defined to include all enzymes with activity classified by the Enzyme commission number EC 2.7.7.31 (See, enzyme - ExPASy: SIB Bioinformatics Resource Portal, EC 2.7.7.31).

According to certain aspects of the present disclosure, the template independent DNA polymerase is a terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT) of the polX family of DNA polymerases. TdT may also be referred to as DNA nucleotidylexotransferase, (DNTT) or simply terminal transferase. According to further aspects of the disclosure, TdT is of mammalian origin, for example, from bovine or murine sources. Further description of TdT is provided in Biochim Biophys Acta., May 2010; 1804(5): 1151-1166, hereby incorporated by reference in its entirety. TdT creates polynucleotide strands by catalyzing the addition of nucleotides to the 3' terminus of a DNA molecule in the absence of a template. The preferred substrate of TdT is a 3'-overhang, but it can also add nucleotides to blunt or recessed 3' ends. Cobalt is a cofactor, however the enzyme catalyzes reaction upon Mg2+, Zn2+, and Mn+ administration in vitro. Nucleic acid initiator fragments or sequences may be 4 or 5 nucleotides or longer and may be single stranded or double stranded. Double stranded initiators may have a 3' overhang or they may be blunt ended or they may have a 3' recessed end. Preferred nucleotides are dTTP, dATP, dGTP, dCTP. TdT can catalyze incorporation of many modified nucleotides.

According to certain aspects of the disclosure, the template independent DNA polymerase is a terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase of the archaeo-eukaryotic primase (AEP) superfamily. Exemplary terminal transferases are described in Guilliam, T. A., Keen, B. A., Brissett, N. C, & Doherty, A. J, (2015), Primase-polymerases are a functionally diverse superfamily of replication and repair enzymes, Nucleic Acids Research, 43(14), 6651-64, which is hereby incorporated by reference in its entirety.

In further aspects of the disclosure, the terminal transferase is PolpTN2, a DNA primase-polymerase protein encoded by the pTN2 plasmid from Thermococcus nautilus. In further aspects of the contemplated disclosure a C-terminal truncation of PolpTN2 may be used, such as Δ311-923.

EXAMPLE II

3'-Allyl carbonate dNTP (ACdNTP) was prepared as follows and as shown in Fig. 19 using the following steps 1-5.

Step 1 : Under a blanket of argon at room temperature, carbonyldiimidazole ("CDI" circa 1.2 eq) was added to a stirring solution of TBS protected thymidine (1 eq.) in TUF (0.1 M reaction concentration). Catalytic KOH {circa 0.2 eq) was then added. The reaction was allowed to continue until TLC indicates consumption of substrate. In some instances, additional portions of CDI may be neded to completely consume starting material.) At this point, allyl alcohol (1.2 eq) was added in one portion. Once the reaction was complete as indicated by TLC, the reaction was stopped with the addition of water. The product was then extracted with ethyl acetate. Washing with brine and drying over sodium sulfate provided the crude product. Purification by column chromatography (stationary phase of silica gel and mobile phase of ethyl acetate: hexane) provided the desired product, which is the 5'-TBS-3'- allyl carbonate thymidine.

Step 2: To the 5'-TBS-3*-allyl carbonate thymidine (1 eq) was added TUF (0.1 M reaction concentration) and TBAF (1M, 1.2 eq) at room temperature. The reaction was allowed to continue until TLC indicated consumption of starting material. The reaction was stopped with the addition of water. The product was extracted with ethyl acetate. Washing with brine and drying over sodium sulfate provided the crude product, which is the 3'-allyl carbonate thymidine. Generally, purification by column chromatography (stationary phase of silica gel and mobile phase of ethyl acetate: hexane) is best practice to obtain the pure product.

Step 3 : After drying over desiccant, the 3'-allyl carbonate thymidine (1 eq) was diluted with POMe3 {circa. 0.06 M reaction concentration). The solution was then cooled to 0° C. Fresh POCl3 (2 eq) is added slowly and the reaction is allowed to continue at 0° C for 1 to 3 hours. See Chem. Rev. 2016, 1 16, 7854-789; Acta Biochim. Biophys. Acad. Sci. Hung. 1981, 16 (3-4), 131-133; and Yoshikawa, M; Kato, T.; Takenishi, T. A Novel Method for Phosphorylation of Nucleosides to 5 '-Nucleotides. Tetrahedron Lett. 1967, 8 (50), 5065-5068 each of which is hereby incorporated by reference in its entirety.

Step 4: At 0°C, tributylammonium pyrophosphate (0.6 M, 20 eq) was added and the reaction was allowed to stir for about one to five minutes.

Step 5: The solution was then diluted with TEAB (triethylammonium bicarbonate buffer 1.0 M, pH 8.5±0.1, circa 500mL/mmol substrate) and allowed to stir for about 12 hours. The resulting solution was washed with ethyl acetate and concentrated in vacuo. The crude product was then collected from reverse phase FIPLC (acetonitrile:water, 0.1 TFA or TEAA, 5μ CI 8). The desired fractions were lyophilized to provide the desired 3'-allyl carbonate dNTP (ACdNTP) powder. ESI-MS m/z (M+H)+ Calcd for [C14H22N2016P3]+ = 567.0, Found 567.0.

EXAMPLE III 3'-Couraminyl carbonate dNTP (CCdNTP) was prepared as follows and as shown in Fig. 20 using the following steps 1-5.

Step 1 : Under a blanket of argon at room temperature, carbonyldiimidazole ("CDI" circa 1.2 eq) was added to a stirring solution of TBS protected thymidine (1 eq.) in THF (0.1 M reaction concentration). Catalytic KOH {circa 0.2 eq) was then added. The reaction was allowed to continue until TLC indicates consumption of substrate. In some instances, additional portions of CDI may be needed to completely consume starting material. At this point, 7-(diethylamino)-4-(hydroxymethyl)-2H-chromen-2-one (1.2 eq.) was added in one portion. The reaction was stopped with the addition of water and the product was extracted with ethyl acetate. Washing with brine and drying over sodium sulfate provided the crude product. Purification by column chromatography (stationary phase of silica gel and mobile phase of ethyl acetate: hexane) provided the desired product, which is the 5'-TBS-3'- coumarinyl carbonate thymidine.

Step 2: To the 5'-TBS-3'-coumarinyl carbonate thymidine (1 eq) was added THF (0.1M reaction concentration) and TBAF (1M, 1.2 eq) at room temperature. The reaction was allowed to continue until TLC indicated consumption of starting material. The reaction was stopped with the addition of water. The product was extracted with ethyl acetate. Washing with brine and drying over sodium sulfate provided the crude product, which is the 3'-coumarinyl carbonate thymidine. Generally, purification by preparatory TLC is best practice to obtain the pure product. 3'-coumarinyl carbonate thymidine degraded when exposed to ambient and UV light for prolonged periods.

Step 3 : After drying over desiccant, the 3'-coumarinyl carbonate thymidine (1 eq) was diluted with POMe3 {circa. 0.06 M reaction concentration). The solution was then cooled to 0°C. Fresh POCh (2 eq) was added slowly and the reaction was allowed to continue at 0°C for 1 to 3 hours. See Chem. Rev. 2016, 116, 7854-789; Acta Biochim. Biophys. Acad. Sci.

The resulting solution was washed with ethyl acetate and concentrated in vacuo. The crude product was then collected from reverse phase FIPLC (acetonitrile:water, 0.1 TFA or TEAA , 5μ CI 8).
