Triplex forming oligonucleotides could prevent genetic transcription at the level of genes. Nucleotide bases with the capability of specific H- bonding interactions with base pairs in the major groove of DNA have been designed. Calculations by semiempirical methods lead to four compounds as possible triplet forming nucleobases.
