Molecules Inhibit HIV Protease, Could Lead to New Line of Attack Against AIDS According to Emory Researcher

Researchers have identified a molecule with the ability to inhibit a key enzyme of HIV, a finding that could limit the spread of the virus that causes AIDS. The laboratory test results are reported in the February 7 issue of the Journal of the American Chemical Society, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society.

Known as polyoxometalate, or POM, the molecule stopped HIV protease at a molecular location away from its "active site," according to Craig Hill, an author of the paper and chemistry professor at Emory University in Atlanta. The preliminary research is the first report of such inhibition, which Hill believes could - in combination with conventional HIV drugs - reduce the chances of spreading the virus, particularly drug-resistant strains.

Hemby's Study Dusts Cocaine Addiction For Prints

HembyResearchers led by Yerke's Scott Hemby have identified more than 400 human genes affected by long-term cocaine abuse.
