The 5'-triphosphate of 5-nitroindole-2'-deoxyriboside has been shown to be a good substrate for terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT). An antibody has been prepared for the detection of 5-nitroindole and has been used for the detection of 5-nitroindole tailed DNA both in single-stranded form and after hybridisation to a template. This is therefore a new method for the detection of nucleic acid probes.
