Abstract

The kinetic parameters governing the inhibition by Nevirapine of the RNA-dependent DNA synthesis catalyzed by HIV-1 reverse transcriptase have been determined by steady-state kinetic analysis with the wild-type enzyme and with mutant reverse transcriptases containing the single amino acid substitutions L100I, K103N, V106A, V179D, Y181I and Y188L. While the mutant V179D was inhibited by Nevirapine as the wild-type enzyme, all the other mutations displayed a 17 to 90-fold reduced sensitivity to the drug in the order: Y181I<(i.e. less sensitive) Y188L < V106A < L100I < K103N < wild-type. Determination of the rate constants for Nevirapine binding (kon) and dissociation (koff) for the mutant and wild-type enzymes showed that mutations L100I and V106A increased the koff values by 12 and 8.5-fold, respectively, without significantly affecting the kon, whereas mutation K103N decreased the kon 5-fold without increasing the koff. Mutations Y181I and Y188L, on the other hand, conferred resistance to Nevirapine affecting both koff and kon values. In addition, mutations L100I and Y181I reduced the catalytic potential of HIV-1 RT. Thus, Nevirapine resistance could arise from a combination of loss of stabilizing interactions and emergence of steric and thermodynamic barriers for drug binding, depending on the particular amino acid substitution involved.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
