Inhibition of vertebrate telomerases by the triphosphate derivatives of some biologically active nucleosides.


In order to clarify the effect of the base moiety of nucleotide analogs on telomerase inhibition, triphosphate derivatives of biologically active nucleosides, 3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine (AZT), 2'-deoxy-2'-fluoroarafuranosylthymine (FaraT), acycloguanosine (ACG) and their guanine or thymine counterparts (AZdG, FaraG and ACT, respectively) were investigated… (More)
