A short multigram synthesis of 2′-O-methylpseudouridine and its phosphoramidite derivative is described which avoids the use of protecting groups on the nitrogens. A binding study of oligonucleotides containing this modification suggest an increased binding affinity to RNA when compared to oligonucleotides incorporating 2′-O-methyluridine.
