3'-Azido-3'-deoxythymidine is a Anti-viral agent, and also used as a reverse transcriptase inhibitor active against HIV-1 virus that blocks the incorporation of nucleotides into growing DNA strands. Useful for antiviral and anticancer studies. 3?-Azido-3?-deoxythymidine enters CNS by diffusion and causes irreversible telomere shortening.
