This invention relates to a method for selecting 5 nucleic acid ligands which bind and/or photocrosslink to and/or photoinactivate a target molecule. The target mol- ecule may be a protein, pathogen or toxic substance, or
any biological effector. The nucleic acid ligands of the present invention contain photoreactive or chemically re- 10 active groups and are useful, inter alia, for the diagnosis and/or treatment of diseases or pathological or toxic states.
