Novel Thiazolidinone Derivatives with an Uncommon Mechanism of Inhibition Towards HIV-1 Reverse Transcriptase
Here, we show that novel 2-aryl-3-(4-adamantyl-thiazol-21,3-thiazolidin-4-one derivatives have a mixed- or fully competitive mechanism of inhibition towards HIV-1 Reverse Transcriptase with respect to the substrates of the reaction. Thus, they are interesting starting points for the development of novel NNRTIs with an uncommon mechanism of action.
