dc.description.abstract 5-Methyluridine (5-MU) is an intermediate in the synthesis of ß-thymidine and the antiretroviral drugs stavudine (d4T) and zidovudine (AZT)1-3. The enzymatic preparation of 5-MU involves transglycosylation4-6 and avoids the formation of unwanted isomers. The overall transglycosylation reaction effectively converts one nucleoside into another through exchange of the heterocyclic base in the presence of nucleoside phosphorylases. en_US
