    Worthington Biochemical hiv rt rnase h
    Antiviral mechanism of ODN sequences. a Schematic representation of reverse transcription of <t>HIV</t> and mechanism of ODN A action. The HIV-1 extended polypurine tract (PPT) is indicated as black box with the RT/RNase H cleavage side depicted in white. ODN A interacts with the highly conserved PPT, mimicking the natural replication intermediate RNA-DNA hybrid, which results in premature activation of reverse transcriptase (RT)/RNase H hydroloysis of the viral RNA genome. b Sequences of the ODNs used. All ODNs form hairpin-like structures with an antisense ( lower ) and passenger ( upper ) strand linked by four thymidines. Watson-Crick bonds are shown as vertical bars . Phosphorothioate-modified nucleotides are shown in bold and marked by a star . The ODN A sequence is complementary to the extended PPT, and ODN Co targets an HIV-1 RNA region outside of the PPT. ODN G serves as a further control, with a similar passenger strand sequence compared to ODN A but a non-complementary HIV-1 PPT sequence. c Sequence of the extended polypurine tract of HIV-1 recognized by the viral RNase H, whose specific cleavage site is indicated by an arrow

The cleavage products were analyzed by denaturing polyacrylamide/8 M urea gel electrophoresis and are presented schematically on the right . Cleavage sites are indicated by arrowheads and labeled products are shown in black . ODN Co, annealing to sequences downstream of the PPT, served as a control. d Following the experimental procedure shown at the top : Freshly thawed ODN A or ODN Co (250 nM), or ODN A stored for 102 days at 37 °C in PBS were incubated with replication-competent HIV-1 particles (1 × 10 9 ) at 37 °C for 6 h in cell culture medium. Jurkat 1G5 T cells were infected with the mixtures overnight and HIV-1 p24 antigen in the supernatant was detected at 3–14 days post infection.

After annealing, samples were incubated with 0.05 units/μl of HIV RT/RNase H (Worthington, USA) for a further 30 min at 37 °C.

    The lubricant CMC (K-Y Jelly) does not influence the stability and antiviral activity of ODN A. a ODN A (8 μM) was incubated for the indicated days in 25 % K-Y Jelly (in PBS) at 37 °C. The samples were analyzed by 10 % non-denaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. b Analysis of ODN A-triggered, RNase H-mediated cleavage of PPT RNA in vitro. Assays were performed as described in Fig. 2c . Cleavage sites are indicated by arrowheads and the labeled products are indicated in black . c Following the experimental procedure shown at the top : ODN A pre-incubated in 25 % K-Y Jelly/PBS for 57 days, freshly thawed ODN A, or ODN Co (both 250 nM) were incubated with replication-competent HIV-1 virions (1 × 10 9 ) at 37 °C for 6 h in cell culture medium. Jurkat 1G5 T cells were subsequently infected overnight. Virus replication was monitored by HIV-1 p24 antigen ELISA of culture supernatants at day 3–14 post infection.
