The SVM technique was adequate to produce an effective QSAR model and outperformed those in the literature and the predictive stages for the inhibitory activity of reverse transcriptase by HEPT derivatives.
The researchers found telomerase reverse transcriptase gene mutations in three of the 292 smokers with emphysema, a disease in which the air sacs in the lungs are gradually damaged, making the person increasingly more short of breath.
20 November 2014 - US recombinant enzymes and related reagents maker New England Biolabs, or NEB, said yesterday it had introduced WarmStart RTx Reverse Transcriptase, a next generation, thermostable reverse transcriptase, especially designed for nucleic acid detection.
If successfully developed and approved by regulatory authorities, the treatment is to offer an option to HIV patients to switch from a standard three-drug therapy to a two-drug, nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor sparing antiviral regimen.
We compared the telomere length and telomerase activity in DPaSCs with those in MSCs and found that DPaSCs possessed ideal characteristics on telomere length, telomerase activity and reverse transcriptase activity, making DPaSCs suitable alternative candidates for regenerative medicine.
About 10 years ago, biochemical studies in several laboratories established that AZT-resistant HIV-1 reverse transcriptase uses adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, which moves energy around inside the cell, to remove the AZT.
Then, following a short reverse transcriptase step which gives a 'jump-start' to the PCR replication process, samples are loaded into the BAX[R] System cycler/detector for processing.
Intrapartum and neonatal single-dose nevirapine are commonly used and essential in the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV in resource-poor settings, but may induce resistance to other non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors.
They recorded the incidence of myocardial infarction during the follow-up period and looked at the associations between myocardial infarction and exposure to protease inhibitors or non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors.
Viral enzymes reverse transcriptase, protease, and integrase are transcribed from which of the following genes?
Nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs), the first antiretroviral agents to be introduced to the market back in 1987, remain a mainstay of anti-HIV therapy.
Ed4T, which was developed by Yale University, Kagoshima University and Showa University, is a nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor with enhanced anti-HIV-1 activity.
based in Cork, Ireland and now part of Johnson & Johnson, is a "second generation" NNRTI (non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor)--an antiretroviral in the same class as efavirenz (brand name Sustiva, or Stochrin in many countries) or nevirapine (Viramune).
Reverset was also shown to be effective in patients with virus resistant to other commonly used nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs), including viruses harboring multiple thymidine analog mutations (TAMS), including the M41L and L210W mutations, and the L74V and M184V mutations.
Many people did not achieve durable virologic benefits from these drugs, mainly because they had previously taken and developed resistance to the nucleoside analog reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs).
