Animation Description

This 3D animation depicts HIV Protease, an enzyme responsible for cleaving amino acids chains created by ribosomes, before packaging into new viruses. Of interest to the biotech and scientific community is the rate of mutation this protein undergoes as a result of drug interactions. Identifying these residues and in turn modifying drugs to prevent this mutation allows new drugs to offer a new hope for better treatment outcomes.
