The human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV-1) transframe protein p6* is located between the structural and enzymatic domains of the Gag-Pol polyprotein, flanked by the nucleocapsid (NC) and the protease (PR) domain at its amino and carboxyl termini, respectively. Here, we report that recombinant highly purified HIV-1 p6* specifically inhibits mature HIV-1 PR activity. Kinetic analyses and cross-linking experiments revealed a competitive mechanism for PR inhibition by p6*. We furtherdoi:10.1074/jbc.274.31.21539 pmid:10419458 fatcat:as3wzhsomzdixl656abgjwc6qy
