I would like to know what is the role played by the HIV protease, I mean the
one which is inhibited by antiprotease drugs (sucha as Nelfinavir /
Is it this enzyme which cuts the large polypeptide coded by the
monocistronic HIV genome in order to build the capside ?
Could you tell me what kind of molecule is the inhibitor, what is its
specificity, and how does it work ?
