Inorganic pyrophosphate (PP i ) is the product of the polymerization reaction catalyzed by DNA- and RNA-polymerases. A number of novel non-hydrolsable PP i analogues was synthesized; some of them inhibited the polymerization reaction catalyzed by hepatitis C virus RNA-dependent RNA-polymerase (NS5B). A new pharmacophore based on a non-hydrolysable(More)
The structure-function analysis of 36 methylenebisphosphonates (BPs) as inhibitors of the phosphorolytic activity of native and drug-resistant forms of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT) was performed. It was shown that with the increase of the inhibitory potential of BPs towards the phosphorolytic activity raises their ability to inhibit the RT-catalyzed DNA(More)
Inorganic pyrophosphate (PPi) mimetics designed on a basis of methylenediphosphonic acid backbone are promising inhibitors of two key HIV replication enzymes, IN [1] and RT [2]. Herein, we present chemical synthesis of eleven methylenebisphosphonates (BPs) with their NMR and HRMS analysis synthesized via five different ways. Also, we present data on(More)
