Cyclosaligenyl-2',3'-didehydro-2',3'-dideoxythymidine Monophosphate: Efficient Intracellular Delivery of d4TMP Jan Balzarini1,
D4TTP was preferentially incorporated into the T sites of the elongating DNA strand by HIV-RT and terminated DNA synthesis at the incorporation sites. The DNA chain termination activity of D4TTP was equipotent to that of AZTTP. In contrast, D4TTP was a poor substrate for pol alpha and pol epsilon. The analogue was incorporated into DNA by the human enzymes about 10,000- to 20,000-fold less efficiently than by HIV-RT, whereas the incorporation of AZTTP by pol alpha and pol epsilon was not detectable by the DNA primer extension assay. Pol epsilon, an enzyme with 3'----5'-exonuclease activity, was unable to remove the incorporated 2',3'-didehydro-2',3'-dideoxythymidine monophosphate.
