Family

Protein VP3, rotavirus (IPR011181)

Short name: VP3_Rotav

Family relationships

None.

Description

Viral protein 3 (VP3) specifically binds to GTP and contains mRNA guanylyltransferase and mRNA (guanine-N(7)-)-methyltransferase activities. It is a multifunctional enzyme involved in mRNA capping. It catalyses the formation of the 5' cap structure on the viral plus-strand transcripts [PMID: 10603323].
