2-Chloro-9-(2-deoxy-2-fluoro-beta-D-arabinofuranosyl)-adenine (Cl-F-ara-A) has activity against the P388 tumor in mice on several different schedules. Biochemical studies with a chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line (K562) grown in cell culture have been done in order to better understand its mechanism of action. Cl-F-ara-A was a potent inhibitor of K562(More)
The 2-fluoro derivative of 9-beta-D-arabinofuranosyladenine (2-F-ara-A) and its soluble 5'-formate and 5'-phosphate derivatives were therapeutically effective against the parent leukemia L1210 (L1210/0). 2-F-ara-A and 9-beta-D-arabinofuranosyladenine 5'-formate were inactive aginst a 1-beta-D-arabinofuranosylcytosine-resistant subline (L1210/ara-C) that was(More)
Perchloric acid extracts of radiation-induced fibrosarcoma (RIF-1) tumors grown in mice have been analyzed by multinuclear NMR spectroscopy and by various chromatographic methods. This analysis has permitted the unambiguous assignment of the 31P resonances observed in vivo to specific phosphorus-containing metabolites. The region of the in vivo spectra(More)
Carbodine, the carbocyclic analog of cytidine, was found to possess significant antiviral activity against influenza virus types A0/PR-8/34 and A2/Aichi/2/68 (Hong Kong) in vitro. The compound selectively inhibited PR-8 influenza virus-induced cytopathogenic effects in Madin-Darby canine kidney and inhibited Hong Kong influenza virus replication in primary(More)
9-beta-D-Arabinofuranosyl-2-fluoroadenine (2-F-araA) inhibited the growth in vitro of HeLa cells by 50% at a concentration of 0.25 microM and depressed the replication of herpes simplex virus Types 1 and 2 by 99% at 25 microM. The analogue served as a substrate for cytoplasmic but not mitochondrial deoxycytidine (dCyd) kinase partially purified from human(More)
