In the battle against viruses, antiviral peptides (AVPs) had demonstrated the immense potential. Presently, more than 15 peptide-based drugs are in various stages of clinical trials. Emerging and re-emerging viruses further emphasize the efforts to accelerate antiviral drug discovery efforts.
Furnishes a library dealing with annotated HTLV-1 proviral sequences derived from clinical, epidemiological and geographical studies publicly available. The HTLV-1 database contains more than 2000 annotated sequences. Searches can be made by specific search fields, as well as genomic region, subtype, subgroup, geographic region of origin, and continent of origin, to allow various data combinations.
A manually curated database of experimentally verified HIV inhibiting peptides targeting various steps or proteins involved in the life cycle of HIV e.g. fusion, integration, reverse transcription etc.
