HIV Protease Structural Database



Veerasamy Ravichandran, J Vondrasek, G L. Gilliland, Talapady N. Bhat, A Wlodawer


The HIV Protease Database (HIVdb) is a web-based archive for HIV protease structural information. HIVdb contains experimentally determined three-dimensional structures of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), human immunodeficiency virus type 2 (HIV-2), and simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) proteases and their complexes with inhibitors or products of substrate cleavage. This resource provides macromolecular structural data on HIV and related proteases and tools to analyze this data to scientists engaged in basic research, in the development of drugs and in the development of therapies in the fight against AIDS. The structural holdings of the HIVdb are from two sources, the Protein Data Bank (PDB) and from academic, government and industrial laboratories that have not deposited the coordinates in the PDB. The HIVdb can be accessed via the web at .
