Global Oligonucleotide Synthesis Market: Restraint

  • Low Quality and Complexity of Oligonucleotide Products: Natural oligonucleotides are composed of ribose or deoxyribose sugar phosphate as a base, which are quickly degraded in the body by nucleus. Moreover, in generic testing, Oligo degradation can affect cell growth and proliferation. Furthermore, the low quality of microarray-generated oligonucleotide sequences is a major challenge in adopting microarray technology for oligonucleotide synthesis. These factors are expected to restrain the global oligonucleotide synthesis market growth. For instance, oligonucleotides act on the RNA level through different molecular pathways, but there is a major drawback when using them as drugs: their poor bioavailability and cellular uptake. These considerations limit their application as therapeutics. To address these problems, it is vital to develop delivery systems that enable oligonucleotides to reach their targets: cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) present a potential solution to this issue. To overcome the challenge, on March 10 , 2022, Bachem, a company specializing in the development and manufacturing of peptides and oligonucleotides, developed cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) as a delivery system for oligonucleotides.
