Names

Accepted name:
HIV-1 retropepsin
Other names:
HIV aspartyl protease
HIV proteinase
HIV-1 protease

Systematic name:

Reaction

Comments:

Present in human immunodeficiency virus type 1. Contributes to the maturation of the viral particle, and is a target of antiviral drugs. Active enzyme is a dimer of identical 11-kDa subunits. Similar enzymes occur in other retroviruses [1]. Type example of peptidase family A2.
