5-Fluoro-2'deoxyuridine 5'-(p-azidophenyl phosphate), a potential photoaffinity label of thymidylate synthetase.


5-Fluoro-2'-deoxyuridine 5'-(p-azidophenyl phosphate) (1), a potential photoaffinity labeling reagent for thymidylate synthetase from a methotrexate-resistant strain of Lactobacillus casei, has been synthesized and characterized. UV254 irradiation of mixtures of thymidylate synthetase with 1, containing 14C-labeled phenyl and 3H-labeled pyrimidine rings, in… (More)
