Reverse Transcriptase

Reverse Transcriptase

Reverse transcription, also known as cDNA synthesis from an RNA template, is carried out by reverse transcriptases (RTs), an enzyme. To direct the synthesis of the first strand cDNA, reverse transcriptases (RTs) combine an RNA template with a brief primer complementary to the 3' end of the RNA.

Reverse transcriptase, an HIV enzyme, is blocked by nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs). HIV reverse transcriptase is bound to and blocked by non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NNRTIs). Reverse transcription is the process by which HIV turns RNA into DNA. HIV cannot replicate when reverse transcriptase and reverse transcription are blocked.
