Abstract

Phosphoramidate pronucleotides have proven to be an effective strategy for the intracellular delivery of nucleoside 5′-monophosphates. This review will summarize our efforts to understand the in vitro and in vivo behavior of phosphoramidate monoesters of 3′-azido-3′-deoxythymidine (AZT), 3′ -fluoro-3′-deoxythymidine (FLT) and 5-fluoro-2′-deoxyuridine (FUdR). Insights drawn from these studies have proved valuable for the future design of phosphoramidate-based pronucleotides.
