The GST-Tagged Active HIV1 Protease Recombinant is ≥90% pure active recombinant for inhibitor screening assays, selectivity profiling, activity studies, ELISA, western blotting, and several such applications.

The HIV-1 protease is a retroviral aspartyl protease (retropepsin) that is vital for the life-cycle of HIV. The HIV protease cleaves recently synthesized viral polyproteins at the right places into functional protein products as mature protein parts of an infectious HIV virion. The mutation of HIV protease's active site or hindrance of its activity upsets HIV’s ability to replicate and infect more cells.
