Viral Proteases and Their Inhibitorsprovides a thorough examination of viral proteases from their molecular components, to therapeutic applications. As information on three dimensional structures and biological functions of these viral proteases become known, unexpected protein folds and unique mechanisms of proteolysis are realized. This book investigates how this facilitates the design and development of potent antiviral agents used against life-threatening viruses. Users will find descriptions of each virus that detail the structure and function of viral proteases, discuss the design and development of inhibitors, and analyze the structure-activity relationships of inhibitors. This book is ideal biochemists, virologists and those working on antiviral agents.

  • Provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art coverage of virus infections, the virus lifecycle, and mechanisms of protease inhibition
  • Analyzes structure-activity relationships of inhibitors of each viral protease
  • Presents an in-depth view of the structure and function of viral proteases
Dr. Gupta is one of the pioneers working in theoretical aspects of drug design. He has many excellent publications in highly reputed journals.
