Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Enzyme Inhibition of Purified HIV-1 Protease
Description:  Protease inhibitors (PI) are used to treat HIV infection by preventing viral assembly and maturation through the inhibition of HIV-1 protease activity. Biochemical assays were performed to evaluate the potential of PEG-PI conjugates to inhibit HIV-1 protease activity, relative to their respective PI parent molecules. Activity assays were performed at using the SensoLyte 520 HIV-Protease Assay Kit (Anaspec Inc., San Jose, Calif.) and recombinant HIV-1 protease. Protease activity was monitored by the formation of a fluorescent reporter product generated during HIV-1 protease-mediated digestion of a quenched, fluorimetric substrate containing the p17/p24 Prgag cleavage site.
