To conclude, while pyrene units at the tandem junction are likely to cause destabilization of corresponding duplexes with complementary DNA target, an attendant effect of stabilization caused by hydrophobic interactions between multiple pyrene units at the junction resulted in difference of only 2.1[degrees]C between [T.sub.m] values of duplexes (IVb+IIb) x fcDNA and (IV+II) x fcDNA.
