Abstract: One of the therapeutic strategies in HIV neutralization is blocking membrane fusion. In this process, tight interaction between the N-terminal and C-terminal heptad-repeat (NHR and CHR) regions of gp41 is essential to promote membranes apposition and merging. We have previously developed single-chain proteins (named covNHR) that accurately mimic the complete gp41 NHR region in its trimeric conformation. They tightly bind CHR-derived peptides and show a potent and broad HIV inhibitory activity in vitro. However…
