Phosphorylation of four acyclic guanosine analogs by herpes simplex virus type 2 thymidine kinase.

By A Larsson and P Z Tao

Abstract

Four acyclic guanosine analogs, the (R) and (S) enantiomers of 9-(3,4-dihydroxybutyl)guanine, 9-(4-hydroxybutyl)guanine, and acyclovir were compared in enzyme kinetic experiments, using purified herpes simplex virus type 2 thymidine kinase. All four analogs showed competitive patterns of inhibition in the phosphorylation of thymidine by the viral thymidine kinase, but different affinities and relative rates of phosphorylation were observed
