5-(Ferrocene-1-yl-ethynyl)-2′-deoxycytidine triphosphate is a ferrocene labeled analog of natural cytidine triphosphate. Ferrocene is used as the gold standard for electrochemical labeling. Its conjugation at 5- position of cytidine triphosphate allows enzymatic incorporation of such analog in primer extension reactions and PCR. The compound might be used for electrochemical redox labeling of DNA, site-specific redox labeling, or in the development of highly sensitive genosensors.
