About this book


This volume describes the state-of-the-art of our understanding of the structure and function of retroviral proteases, and their substrates, the viral polyproteins, described by the leading workers in the field. The contributions range from detailed biochemical and structural characterisation of several retroviral proteases including that from HIV-1, through the analysis of the proteolytic processing of the viral polyproteins, to the structure of the viral capsids formed by the action of the protease, and is essential reading for anyone interested in the molecular biology of AIDS.
