121626-79-7, 2',3'-Didehydro-2',3'-dideoxycytidine 5'-triphosphate, 2',3'-Didehydro-2',3'-dideoxycytosine.
After serial passage of the HXB2 strain of HIV-1 in MT4 cells, a novel mutation involving two nucleotide substitutions in codon 75 of the viral reverse transcriptase, altering valine to threonine, was seen. When introduced into a wild-type HIV-1 background by site-directed mutagenesis, the T-75 mutation conferred cross-resistance to the dideoxynucleosides dideoxyinosine and dideoxycytosine as well as to 2',3'-didehydro-2',3'-dideoxycytosine.
The preparations and antiviral activities of a series (4-17) of potential prodrug forms of the antivirals 2',3'-didehydro-2',3'-dideoxyadenosine (D4A) and 2',3'-didehydro-2',3'-dideoxycytosine (D4C) are reported. The 5'-phenyl- and 5'-methylphosphonates (4, 6, 8, and 10) and their phosphonothionate congeners (5, 7, 9, and 11), with the exception of 10, were inactive in vitro against HIV-1 and HIV-2.
