The use of a new in vitro reaction substrate reproducing both U3 and U5 regions of the HIV-1 3'-ends increases the correlation between the in vitro and in vivo effects of the HIV-1 integrase inhibitors.

Abstract

Human Immunodeficiency Virus type 1 (HIV-1) integrase (IN) is an attractive target for the development of new antiviral therapies. Recently, several HIV-1 recombinant IN (rIN) in vitro inhibitors have been described. However, the great majority of them failed to block the virus replication in cell-based assays, suggesting the inadequacy of the in vitro… (More)
