Abstract

The recently determined structures of HIV-1 reverse transcriptase and Taq DNA polymerase in complex with DNA primer-template and an incoming nucleotide have shown that a large conformational change configures the polymerase active site for nucleotidyl transfer. The structure of reverse transcriptase in the catalytic complex will open the path to the rational design of novel nucleoside analog inhibitors of viral replication.
