Abstract

Ribonuclease H (RNase H) is an essential component to the replication of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and only a few inhibitors of this enzyme are known. Millenia Hope Pharmaceuticals Inc. found that (-)-1,3,5-tri-O-caffeoylquinic acid is a potent RNase H inhibitor and antiviral agent. A facile route leading to this inhibitor from commercially available (-)-quinic acid is reported within.
