Looking for new pyrimidine acyclic nucleotide analogues designed for phosphorylation by human ump-cmp kinase.

Abstract

Human UMP-CMP kinase is involved in the phosphorylation of nucleic acid precursors and also in the activation of antiviral analogues including cidofovir, an acyclic phosphonate compound that mimicks dCMP and shows a broad antiviral spectrum. The binding of ligands to the enzyme was here investigated using a fluorescent probe and a competitive titration assay. At the acceptor site, the enzyme was found to accommodate any base, purine and pyrimidine, including thymidine. A method for screening analogues based on their affinity for the UMP binding site was developed. The affinities of uracil vinylphosphonate derivatives modified in the 5 position were found similar to (d)UMP and (d)CMP and improved when compared to cidofovir.
