HIV protease inhibitors (PIs) were first introduced into clinical practice in 1996, and their use has resulted in major clinical benefits for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) -infected people in terms of better viral suppression, improved immune restoration, reduced morbidity, and longer survival. This chapter focuses on the biochemical and molecular basis of inhibition of HIV-1 aspartic protease (PR), the virological basis of PI resistance, and implications on the therapeutics of HIV infections and proposes the research that is still needed in order to further improve on the benefits that PIs offer for HIV medicine. Drug-resistant viruses have been described for all PIs developed to date. Some strains of HIV recovered from extensively treated patients display cross-resistance to a variety of PIs. Additionally, structural data from a highly resistant PR containing 10 resistance mutations revealed an expansion in the active site, as a result of a separation of the flaps by as much as 10 Å, while this distance is only 4 Å in the case of wild-type PR. The degree of suppression of viral replication is the result of the interaction between exposure of the virus to the drug and the inherent susceptibility of the infecting virus to such drug, all this within the diverse environments of human tissues. The study of efflux transporters and their role in PI penetration into, and distribution within, so-called sanctuary sites may lead to ways of making HIV in these compartments more susceptible to antiretrovirals (ARVs).

Figure 1.

HIV protease inhibitors arrest maturation of the virus particle by blocking the processing of Gag and Gag-Pol. This prevents reorganization of the structural proteins within the virion. Any resultant virus particles are not infectious.

Figure 2.

Schematic representation of nine cleavage sites within Gag and Gag-Pol. The PR enzyme recognizes heptamers within its natural substrates. S refers to a pocket in the protease that accepts a group P from the substrate. This nomenclature (by Schechter and Berger) is used for both natural substrates and inhibitors ( ).

Figure 3.

The crystal structure of the wild-type HIV-1 PR. The flaps are flexible structures that open to permit entrance of the large Gag-Pol polyproteins. The aspartate residues in the active site confer hydrolytic activity to the enzyme. This figure was generated from the 3HVP structure in the Research Collaboratory for Structural Bioinformatics Protein Data Bank (RCSB PDB) using software available from PyMol DeLano Scientific, Palo Alto, CA.
