Recently, a novel base-modified uridine derivative, 5-taurinomethyluridine (τm5U) was discovered from bovine and human mitochondrial tRNAs, and this modified ribonucleoside was found to existed at the first position of the anti-codon. We report efficient reactions for the synthesis of RNA oligomers including this base-modified ribonucleotide.
