Nonpeptide HIV protease inhibitors designed to replace a bound water Academic Article uri icon


  • Cyclic nonpeptide molecules were designed and synthesized with the goal of displacing the conserved flap-associated water of HIV-1 protease. Several such molecules were competitive inhibitors with micromolar inhibition constants, and their structure-activity relationships were consistent with the design hypothesis. 1993.
