Categories: , ,



Monuvir™ is a preparation of Molnupiravir. It is an antiviral drug which is orally active and is developed for the treatment of influenza. It is a prodrug of the synthetic nucleoside derivative N4-hydroxycytidine, and exerts its antiviral action through introduction of copying errors during viral RNA replication including SARS-CoV-2, the causative agent of COVID-19. Molnupiravir is a shape-shifter, called a tautomer. It assumes two forms, one which closely resembles uracil and the other cytosine. Because it appears in these two different forms, once it is recopied, the replicating polymerase develops transition mutations, where a U nucleotide is converted to a C and a C to U. Copying RNA that contains Molnupiravir results in fatal flaws in the sequence, stopping replication, shortening infection, and limiting transmission. The difference between the structure of an authentic nucleotide and Molnupiravir is apparently too subtle to trigger removal by the exonuclease repair function of the viral polymerase, a function that has bedeviled these of many other nucleoside inhibitors.
