Disease relevance of 5'-Ethynylthymidine

  • At 100 microM 5'-ethynylthymidine, the cellular pool size of dTTP in herpes simplex virus type 1-infected cells was 5% that of infected cells receiving no drug treatment, while there was no significant effect on the pool sizes of dATP, dGTP, and dCTP [1].

High impact information on 5'-Ethynylthymidine

  • The levels of N-MCT-TP were significantly decreased in the presence of 5'-ethynylthymidine, a potent inhibitor of herpesvirus thymidine kinase, resulting in the abrogation of anti-KSHV activity of N-MCT [2].
  • 5'-Ethynylthymidine, an inhibitor of viral thymidine kinase (TK), was given intraperitoneally to squirrel monkeys previously infected by the ocular route with Rodanus strain herpes simplex virus [3].
