Monitoring the HIV-1 integrase enzymatic activity using atomic force microscopy in a 2LTR system

Author affiliations

Abstract

Integration of the HIV cDNA into the host chromosome is a key event in the viral replication cycle. It is mediated by the viral integrase (IN) enzyme, which is an attractive anti-HIV drug target. Here we present the first AFM imaging of IN-mediated DNA integration products in a two-LTR system.
