Dynamic residue interaction network analysis of secondary mutations in protease that promote drug resistance in HIV-1
CBI学会 2021年大会, オンライン, ポスター発表, P02-02
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is the pathogen of the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). AIDS has become a disease that can be controlled in the long term by anti-HIV drugs. However, there are serious concerns about the emergence of viral mutants that are resistant to anti-HIV drugs. Some amino acid mutations in HIV-1 protease promotes development of drug resistance caused by primary mutations, even without directly affecting drug efficacy against anti-HIV drugs. These mutations are referred to as “secondary mutations”. In this study, we investigated the dynamic correlation between the drug binding site and its secondary mutation site in HIV-1 protease using dynamic residue interaction network (dRIN) analysis based on molecular dynamics simulations.
