Reaction catalysed
Leu is conserved at position P1 for all four cleavage sites. Alanine is found at position P1' of the NS4A-NS4B cleavage site, whereas serine is found at position P1' of the NS3-NS4A, NS4B-NS5A and NS5A-NS5B cleavage sites
  • The polyprotein of noncytopathogenic pestiviruses is cleaved co- and post-translationally into at least 11 proteins (N(pro), C, E(rns), E1, E2, p7, NS2-3, NS4A, NS4B, NS5A, and NS5B).
  • The genomes of cytopathogenic pestivirus strains express at least one additional protein, called NS3 (p80).
  • This enzyme, which resides in the N-terminal region of NS3 (nonstructural protein 3), is essential for generation of its own C-terminus and for processing of the downstream cleavage sites, leading to the release of the pestivirus nonstructural proteins NS4A, NS4B, NS5A and NS5B.
  • Belongs to peptidase family S31.
