Inhibition of heterologous strains of HIV by antisense RNA.
Antisense RNA can inhibit the expression of messenger RNAs (mRNAs) to which they are complementary by a variety of mechanisms and might provide the basis for antiviral therapies of high selectivity. In a previous study of six retrovirally expressed antisense RNAs targeted to HIV-1IIIB, we found that two significantly reduced HIV-1IIIB replication. Here we test the degree to which this inhibitory effect tolerates the natural variation found in the nucleotide sequence of different strains of HI...Expand abstract
