Biochem/physiol Actions

An enzyme that catalyzes the reversible conversion of thymidine to thymine. Thymidine phosphorylase is part of the pyrimidine nucleoside salvage pathway. This pathway allows pyrimidine bases to be recycled for nucleotide biosynthesis, while the pentose 1-phosphates are converted to intermediates of the pentose phosphate shunt and glycolysis. The E. coli thymidine phosphorylase shares 40% sequence homology with the human sequence, which has been found to be identical to the angiogenic agent platelet-derived endothelial growth factor. The purified E. coli enzyme has been shown to stimulate blood vessel growth in chick chorioallantoic membrane assays.

Unit Definition

One unit will convert 1.0 μmole each of thymidine and phosphate to thymine and 2-deoxyribose 1-phosphate per min at pH 7.4 at 25°C.

Capecitabine (CAP), a prodrug, needs to be converted to 5-fluorouracil by several key enzymes, including thymidine phosphorylase (TP). To improve the therapeutic index, potentiation of antitumor activity of CAP is required. In this study, we explored whether lidamycin (LDM), an...

Thirty-three 1,2,4-triazolo[1,5-a][1,3,5]triazin-5,7-dione and its 5-thioxo analogues were designed and synthesized which contained different substituents at meta- and/or para-positions of 2-phenyl or 2-benzyl ring attached to the fused ring structure. The preliminary pharmacological evaluation demonstrated that the 5-thioxo analogues of 1,2,4-triazolo[1,5-a][1,3,5]triazine...

In our lead finding program, a series of 1,2,4-triazolo[1,5-a][1,3,5]triazine derivatives were synthesized, and their in vitro thymidine phosphorylase inhibitory potential was explored. Among the different derivatives, compounds having keto group (C = O) at C7 and thioketo group (C = S) at C5 positions...
