5-Methyl deoxyCytidine when substituted for dC will increase the Tm by as much as 0.5°C per insertion. In addition, the presence of 5-Methyl dC in CpG motifs can prevent or limit unwanted immune responses that otherwise occur if oligos are administered in vivo, which is of particular importance in antisense applications.
