Chemical Name: (2S)-N1-[(1S,2R)-3-[(3S,4aS,8aS)-3-[[(1,1-dimethylethyl)amino]carbonyl]octahydro-2(1H)-isoquinolinyl]-2-hydroxy-1-(phenylmethyl)propyl]-2-[(2-quinolinylcarbonyl)amino]butanediamide methanesulfonate
Biological ActivitySaquinavir mesylate is an inhibitor of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) protease (Ki values are <0.1 and 0.12 nM for HIV-2 and HIV-1 protease respectively). Exhibits high antiviral activity and low cytotoxicity. In silico docking models predict potential as an inhibitor of SARS-CoV-2 3CLpro.
