The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a lentivirus (slowly replicating retrovirus) that causes the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), a condition in humans in which progressive failure of the immune system allows life-threatening opportunistic
HIV2 Reverse Transcriptase (RT) is used by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus to transcribe its RNA genome into single-stranded DNA. HIV2 RT can be used for incorporation of nucleotide analogs into DNA by RT-PCR or as a standard for assaying HIV2 RT activity in Human serum. In contrast to HIV1 RT, HIV2 RT is not inhibited by nonnucleoside RT inhibitors (NNRTI´s).
