Caption: Protease inhibitor drug. Computer artwork of a protease inhibitor drug (yellow) bound to the active site of a protease (red and blue). Proteases are enzymes which cut up other proteins. In viruses such as HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), the cause of AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome), a protease cuts a larger protein into smaller active parts. These active parts are essential for the virus' reproduction. Drugs which prevent this process are of value in slowing or even halting the progress of the disease, especially when used in combination with other drugs.
