LNA PrimeTime® Probes


LNA PrimeTime® Probes are dual-labeled DNA probes designed for use in 5’ nuclease assays. LNA PrimeTime Probes have increased sensitivity for distinguishing DNA base-pair mismatches, and are commonly used for SNP genotyping assays.


Locked Nucleic Acids (LNAs) can be incorporated into dual-labeled probes (DLPs) [1–4]. Because LNA bases significantly increase Tm, LNA PrimeTime Probes can be designed with shorter lengths than standard DLPs. Shorter probes have better quenching and a higher signal-to-noise ratio and are, therefore, more sensitive. More importantly, these probes offer an improved ability to distinguish mutations or single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) [1]. A DNA DLP typically has a ΔTm of ~5°C between perfect-match and mismatch hybridization. An LNA DLP can have a ΔTm of >15°C, greatly increasing accuracy of allele determination in real-time PCR or other methods that use differential hybridization to distinguish polymorphisms.


LNA PrimeTime® Probes can be ordered either at a guaranteed yield of 0.5 nmoles or at defined synthesis scales to suit your research needs:

Mini LNA PrimeTime® Probes
  • Ideal for analyzing a small sample set or performing a few reactions to optimize probe designs
  • Available with FAM and HEX dyes and Iowa Black FQ
  • Guaranteed normalized yield of 0.5 nmoles


LNA PrimeTime® Probes
  • Available with FAM, Cy3®, Cy5®, TEX, TYE, and HEX dyes
  • High synthesis scales (250 nmole and 1 µmole) for large-scale and high throughput requirements


Design Considerations
  • Depending on sequence context, insertion of an LNA base into a DNA oligo can increase the Tm by 3–6°C. However, there are some sequence-specific designs involving G•T and C•A mismatches where LNA bases actually impair specificity [1].
  • LNA bases should be placed at the SNP site and adjacent bases. The SNP should be positioned in the center of the probe if possible. Additional LNA bases can be added towards the 3′-end of the probe to adjust Tm as needed.
  • The relative binding affinity (Tm) of LNA bases are LNA:LNA > LNA:DNA > DNA:DNA. Therefore, it is important to examine the probe sequence for self-dimer and hairpin formation and minimize designs that allow LNA:LNA pairing. In addition, IDT recommends up to 6 LNA bases be placed in an LNA DLP.
