HIV-1 reverse transcriptase and integrase enzymes physically interact and inhibit each other


Tasara, T; Maga, G; Hottiger, M O; Hübscher, U (2001). HIV-1 reverse transcriptase and integrase enzymes physically interact and inhibit each other. FEBS Letters, 507(1):39-44.

Abstract

Ordered molecular interactions and structural changes must take place within the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) preintegration complex at various stages for successful viral replication. We demonstrate both physical and biochemical interactions between HIV-1 reverse transcriptase and integrase enzymes. This interaction may have implications on the in vivo functions of the two enzymes within the HIV-1 replication complex. It may be one of the various molecular interactions, which facilitate efficient HIV-1 replication within the target cells.
