Inside viral infected cells, viral thymidine kinase undergoes a series of consecutive transformations of acyclovir into mono-, di-, and acyclovir triphosphate. Acyclovir triphosphate is inserted into the viral DNA chain and blocks its synthesis through competitive inhibition of viral DNA polymerase. In vitro acycloviractive against Herpes simplex type 1 and 2, Varicella zoster; higher concentrations are required to inhibit Epstein-Barr virus.
