In recent years, orotidine-5'-monophosphate decarboxylase (ODCase) has gained renewed attention as a drug target. As a part of continuing efforts to design novel inhibitors of ODCase, we undertook a comprehensive study of potent, structurally diverse ligands of ODCase and analyzed their structural interactions in the active site of ODCase. These ligands(More)
Fluorinated nucleosides and nucleotides are of considerable interest to medicinal chemists because of their antiviral, anticancer, and other biological activities. However, their direct interactions at target binding sites are not well understood. A new class of 2'-deoxy-2'-fluoro-C6-substituted uridine and UMP derivatives were synthesized and evaluated as(More)
