Definition Of:

REVERSE TRANSCRIPTASE

Bible DictionaryAids Glossary
an enzyme capable of copying RNA into DNA during the HIV replication cycle. Several anti-HIV drugs -- such as AZT, ddI, ddC -- are chemicals that act against the reverse transcriptase enzyme.
Bible DictionaryGlossary of HIV(AIDS)-Related Terms
This enzyme of HIV -- and other retroviruses<!-- (see) --> -- converts the single-stranded viral RNA<!-- (see) --> into DNA<!-- (see) -->, the form in which the cell carries its genes. Some antiviral drugs approved by the FDA for the treatment of HIV infection (e.g., AZT, ddC, ddI, 3TC, D4T, and abacavir) work by interfering with this stage of the viral life cycle. They are also referred to as reverse transcriptase inhibitors (RTIs).
Bible DictionaryHIV Vaccine Glossary
the enzyme produced by HIV and other retroviruses that enables them to direct a cell to synthesize DNA from their viral RNA.
Bible DictionaryGlossary of HIV(AIDS) Terms
An enzyme that is crucial for HIV to grow and multiply.
Bible DictionaryHepatitis Central (TM) Liver Disease Medical Glossary
RNA directed DNA polymerase. Enzyme first discovered in retroviruses, that can construct double stranded DNA molecules from the single stranded RNA templates of their genomes. Reverse transcription now appears also to be involved in movement of certain mobile genetic elements, such as the Ty plasmid in yeast, in the replication of other viruses such as Hepatitis B and possibly in the generation of mammalian pseudogenes
