article description
The RNase H (RNH) function of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT) plays an essential part in the viral life cycle. We report the characterization of YLC2-155, a 2-hydroxyisoquinoline-1,3-dione (HID)-based active-site RNH inhibitor. YLC2-155 inhibits both polymerase (50% inhibitory concentration [IC] = 2.6 μM) and RNH functions (IC = 0.65 μM) of RT but is more effective against RNH. X-ray crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) analysis, and molecular modeling were used to show that YLC2-155 binds at the RNH-active site in multiple conformations.
