A sevenfold increase in the ability to bind to the dimerization interface of HIV-1 protease is observed by adding a ZnII ion to a tris(aminoethyl)amine (TREN) templating unit, which bears two peptides with similar sequences as those at the C and N termini of each monomer of the dimeric enzyme (see picture). It is suggested that the metal ion changes the conformation of the putative inhibitor

Abstract

A sevenfold increase in the ability to bind to the dimerization interface of HIV-1 protease is observed by adding a ZnII ion to a tris(aminoethyl)amine (TREN) templating unit, which bears two peptides with similar sequences as those at the C and N termini of each monomer of the dimeric enzyme (see picture). It is suggested that the metal ion changes the conformation of the putative inhibitor
