Fludarabine (the 5′-phosphate) is a prodrug that is converted to F-ara-A, which enters cells and accumulates primarily as the 5′-triphosphate. F-ara-A interferes with DNA synthesis and repair and induces apoptosis of cancer cells. F-ara-A also strongly inhibits DNA methylation, particularly methylation of cytosine in CpG dinucleotide sequences.
