Binding kinetics and affinities of heterodimeric versus homodimeric HIV-1 reverse transcriptase on DNA-DNA substrates at the single-molecule level.


During viral replication, HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT) plays a pivotal role in converting genomic RNA into proviral DNA. While the biologically relevant form of RT is the p66-p51 heterodimer, two recombinant homodimer forms of RT, p66-p66 and p51-p51, are also catalytically active. Here we investigate the binding of the three RT isoforms to a… (More)
