Abstract: In our previous communication we reported the enzymatic recognition of unnatural imidazopyridopyrimidine:naphthyridine (Im:Na) base pairs, i.e. ImON:NaNO and ImNO:NaON, using the Klenow fragment exo [KF (exo )]. We describe herein the successful results of (i) improved enzymatic recognition for ImNO:NaON base pairs and (ii) further primer extension reactions after the Im:Na base pairs by Deep Vent DNA polymerase exo [Deep Vent (exo )]. Since KF (exo ) did not catalyze primer extension reactions after the Im:Na base pair, we carried out a screening of DNA polymerases to promote the primer extension reaction as well as to improve the selectivity of base pair recognition. As a result, a family B DNA polymerase, especially Deep Vent (exo ), seemed most promising for this purpose. In the ImON:NaNO base pair, incorporation of NaNOTP against ImON in the template was preferable to that of the natural dNTPs, while incorporation of dATP as well as dGTP competed with that of ImONTP when NaNO was placed in the template. Thus, the selectivity of base pair recognition by Deep Vent (exo ) was less than that by KF (exo ) in the case of the ImON:NaNO base pair. On the other hand, incorporation of NaONTP against ImNO in the template and that of ImNOTP against NaON were both quite selective. Thus, the selectivity of base pair recognition was improved by Deep Vent (exo ) in the ImNO:NaON base pair. Moreover, this enzyme catalyzed further primer extension reactions after the ImNO:NaON base pair to afford a faithful replicate, which was confirmed by MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry as well as the kinetics data for extension fidelity next to the ImNO:NaON base pair. The results presented in this paper revealed that the ImNO:NaON base pair might be a third base pair beyond the Watson–Crick base pairs.
