Chemical Name: (+)-2'-Deoxy-2',2'-difluorocytidine hydrochloride
Biological ActivityGemcitabine hydrochloride is a deoxycytidine analog that inhibits DNA synthesis. Metabolized to form gemcitabine triphosphate (dFdCTP) and gemcitabine diphosphate (dFdCDP). dFdCTD inhibits ribonucleotide reductase causing a reduction in cellular nucleotides. dFdCTP is incorporated in DNA resulting in DNA strand termination. Displays antitumor activity in vitro and in vivo. Inhibits replication of MERS-CoV and SARS-CoV in vitro (EC50 values are 1,2 16 and 4.957 μM, respectively).

The compound was used as a control in a study where we determined the effect of our compounds on ribonucleotide reductase enzyme.
Gemcitabine was used at a 20 uM concentration for in vitro culture with SK-MEL-28 and cell viability was monitored over time with live imaging. Arrow indicates when compound was added to media.
