Defective variants of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) protease (HIV PR) have been engineered to inhibit wild-type (wt) HIV PR activity. These variants were designed to promote the formation of heterodimers and to destabilize the formation of inactive variant homodimers of HIV-1 protease through substitutions at Asp-25, Ile-49, and Gly-50 (Babé, L.
