The analysis of kinetic and thermodynamic parameters of binding of peptide and nonpeptide dimerization inhibitors of HIV protease (HIVp) to the enzyme monomers immobilized on an optical chip has been studied by surface plasmon resonance. The molecular interactions were investigated at different inhibitor concentrations (0–80 μM) and temperatures (15–35°C). Determination of kinetic (k on, k off), equilibrium (K d), and thermodynamic (ΔG, ΔH, and -TΔS) has shown that both inhibitors are characterized by similar interaction parameters and the entropic term (-TΔS) of about −20 kcal/mol is the main driving force for the HIVp complex formation with the inhibitors, while the positive value (14 kcal/mol) of the enthalpic term (ΔH) counteracted the complex formation.
