I need to activate a drug similar to the way it is activated in the cell. My set of molecules called Nucleoside analog reverse-transcriptase inhibitors (NARTIs or NRTIs) need three phosphate groups to form a triphosphates. How could I use a deoxycytidine kinase or another protein to form the triphosphate for in vitro experiments?
