Anti-HIV Activity Determination

Anti-HIV Activity Determination

AIDS, also known as acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, is a systemic immunodeficiency disease caused by infection with human immunodeficiency virus. There is an urgent need to develop new anti-HIV drugs with higher antiviral effect, lower toxic side effects and higher resistance barrier. Natural products have significant anti-HIV active ingredients. BOC Sciences can provide such services to help clients quickly detect the active anti-HIV components in natural products for use in the pharmaceutical industry.

Sources of Anti-HIV Natural Products

  • Polyphenolic compounds

Phenolic compounds such as oregano oil, carvacrol and muscimol polyphenols may be potential complementary drugs for current HIV treatment.

  • Terpenoids compounds

Terpenoids have many physiologically active substances, including potent anti-HIV components.

The production of terpenoids has not been fully elucidated.

  • Alkaloids compounds

Natural alkaloids include a variety of active components that inhibit and block HIV infection and are classified into isoquinoline alkaloids, quinoline alkaloids, macrocyclic alkaloids, piperidine alkaloids, scopolamine alkaloids, indole alkaloids, carbazole alkaloids, marine polycyclic guanidine alkaloids, terpene alkaloids, manzamine alkaloids, and others according to their different chemical structure types.

Screening Methods for Anti-HIV Natural Products

  • Cell lines

Currently, the commonly used cell lines for screening exogenous drugs are human T-lymphotropic virus type I infected cell lines, MT-4 cell lines and MT-2 cell lines. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells isolated from the blood of healthy HIV-negative persons can also be used for exogenous drug screening.

  • Target of action

The three main enzymes in the replication process of HIV-1 are reverse transcriptase, proteolytic enzyme and integrase, which play corresponding roles in different stages of the reproduction process of HIV-1. Some natural products scavenge free radicals and inhibit HIV replication.
