In humans and various animal species, 3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine (AZT) is in part eliminated by the kidneys, where it undergoes significant tubular secretion. The goal of this project was to develop, in a continuous renal epithelial cell line (LLCPK1), a model of...

Twenty-five years ago, nucleoside analog 3'-azidothymidine (AZT) was shown to efficiently block the replication of HIV in cell culture. Subsequent studies demonstrated that AZT acts via the selective inhibition of HIV reverse transcriptase (RT) by its triphosphate metabolite. These discoveries...

Replicating virus vectors are attractive tools for anticancer gene therapy, but the potential for adverse events due to uncontrolled spread of the vectors has been a major concern. To design a tumor-specific retroviral replicating vector (RRV), we replaced the U3...
