Construction of HIV Rev peptides containing peptide nucleic acid that bind HIV RRE IIB RNA.


Peptides containing peptide nucleic acid (PNA) have been designed and synthesized to construct molecules recognizing a bulge or a loop structure of RNA. Such peptides were here designed from the HIV Rev protein that can bind the stem-loop IIB of the Rev responsive element (RRE) RNA. Variations of PNA modulated the binding affinities of the peptides to RRE… (More)
