Genomic projects heavily depend on genome annotations and are limited by the current deficiencies in the published predictions of gene structure and function. It follows that, improved annotation will allow better data mining of genomes, and more secure planning and design of experiments. The purpose of the GeneFarm project is to obtain homogeneous,(More)
(E)-9-(5-Phosphonopent-4-enyl)guanine and (E)-9-[3-(hydroxymethyl)-5- phosphonopent-4-enyl]guanine which bear a vinyl phosphonate moiety as a mimic of the phosphate group were synthesized. Their activities against human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1), herpes simplex virus type-1 (HSV-1) and human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) were evaluated in vitro in(More)
Several 9-(phosphonoalkyl)guanines (Gua(CH2)nCH2-PO3H2; n = 4-6) and 9-(difluorophosphonoalkyl)guanines (Gua(CH2)nCF2PO3H2; n = 3-7) were studied as potential substrates and inhibitors of guanylate kinase. These compounds are inhibitors of the enzyme except 9-(5-phosphonopentyl)guanine (n = 4) which is a substrate with an efficiency of phosphorylation of(More)
2',3'-Dideoxyadenosine-5'-monophosphate (ddAMP) is a key intermediate in the metabolic pathway involved in the activation of the anti-retroviral agent 2',3'-dideoxyinosine (ddI) to 2',3'-dideoxyadenosine-5'-triphosphate (ddATP). The potential phosphorylation of ddAMP by adenylate kinase (myokinase) and pyrophosphorylation by the reverse reaction of(More)
