Abstract

To test whether zidovudine (3′-azido-3′-deoxythymidine) (AZT) inhibition of thymidine phosphorylation causes depletion of the TTP pool resulting in mitochondrial DNA depletion, 3T3-F442a cells were differentiated in the presence of AZT and analyzed to determine mitochondrial DNA content and deoxynucleotide levels. These results suggest that AZT toxicity may not be related to deoxynucleotide pool alterations.
