Peptidase C62, gill-associated virus (IPR024348)

Short name: Pept_C62_gill-assoc_virus

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

None.

Description

This protease is found in polyproteins from the positive-stranded RNA virus of prawns called yellow head virus or gill-associated virus (GAV). The GAV cysteine proteinase (3C-like proteinase) is predicted to be the key enzyme in the processing of the GAV replicase polyprotein precursors, polyprotein 1a and polyprotein 1ab. This protease employs a Cys(2968)-His(2879) catalytic dyad [PMID: 12502857]. It is classified as family C62 in the MEROPS database.
