Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is the cause of the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). HIV-1 protease is a retroviral aspartyl protease (retropepsin) that is essential for the life-cycle of the virus as it cleaves newly synthesized polyproteins at the appropriate places to create the mature protein components of an infectious HIV virion. Without effective HIV1 protease, HIV virions remain non-infectious. BioVision’s HIV-1 Activity assay kit utilizes the ability of active HIV-1 protease to cleave a synthetic peptide substrate to release the free fluorophore which can be easily quantified (Ex/Em = 330/450 nm) using a fluorometer or fluorescence microplate reader. This assay kit is simple, rapid and can detect HIV-1 protease activity in samples and of purified enzyme.
