Effects of specific zidovudine resistance mutations and substrate structure on nucleotide-dependent primer unblocking by human immunodeficiency virus type 1 reverse transcriptase.

Abstract:

Nucleotide-dependent unblocking of chain-terminated DNA by human immunodeficiency virus type 1 reverse transcriptase (RT) is enhanced by the presence of mutations associated with 3'-azido-3'-deoxythymidine (AZT) resistance. The increase in unblocking activity was greater for mutant combinations associated with higher levels of in vivo AZT resistance. The difference between mutant and wild-type activity was further enhanced by introduction of a methyl group into the nucleotide substrate and was decreased for a nonaromatic substrate, suggesting that pi-pi interactions between RT and an aromatic structure may be facilitated by these mutations.

Sorting:

Tables may be sorted by clicking on any of the column titles. A second click reverses the sort order. <Ctrl> + click on the column titles to sort by more than one column (e.g. family then name).

Filtering:

It is also possible to filter the table by typing into the search box above the table. This will instantly hide lines from the table that do not contain your search text.
