Acyclovir belongs to a family of drugs known as guanosine analogue antiviral drugs.
Oligomerization of activated D- and L-guanosine mononucleotides on templates containing D- and L-deoxycytidylate residues
The major breakthrough was Martin Rodbell's realization that there was a switch between these two steps, and that this switch, which he called the transducer, could be turned on by a high-energy compound, guanosine triphosphate.
The letter G in G protein stands for guanosine triphosphate.
G-proteins have been so named because they bind guanosine triphosphate (GTP).
Rodbell found that the transducer was driven by guanosine 5'-triphosphate, GTP, an energy rich compound.
Other sugar nucleotides such as uridine diphosphate acetylglucosamine and guanosine diphosphate mannose were also isolated.
The effects on secretion and transit are mediated through cyclic guanosine monophosphate cGMP, which is also believed to modulate the activity of local nerves to reduce pain.
PSI-938 is an oral guanosine nucleotide analog polymerase inhibitor of HCV.
Our other clinical stage HCV candidates include PSI-7977, an unpartnered uracil nucleotide analog that is currently dosing in two Phase 2b studies in patients with HCV genotypes 1, 2, or 3, and PSI-938, an unpartnered guanosine nucleotide analog which recently completed a 14-day monotherapy study and recently initiated a 14-day combination study with PSI-7977.
