HIV-reverse transcriptase and human DNA polymerase alpha share amino acid sequence homologies to bacterial penicillin-binding proteins.

Abstract:

Penicillin-binding proteins are the specific targets for the beta-lactam antibiotics. Recently it was observed that beta-lactam antibiotics also have targets in proliferating eukaryotic cells (1), one of which most likely is the replicative DNA polymerase alpha. Here we show that HIV-reverse transcriptase and human DNA polymerase alpha share amino acid sequence homologies to five bacterial penicillin-binding proteins.
