Novel HIV-1 integrase inhibitors derived from quinolone antibiotics.

Abstract

The viral enzyme integrase is essential for the replication of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) and represents a remaining target for antiretroviral drugs. Here, we describe the modification of a quinolone antibiotic to produce the novel integrase inhibitor JTK-303 (GS 9137) that blocks strand transfer by the viral enzyme. It shares the core… (More)
