Domain relationships



This entry represents a rice tungro spherical waikavirus-type peptidase that belongs to MEROPS peptidase family C3G. It is a picornain 3C-type protease, and is responsible for the self-cleavage of the positive single-stranded polyproteins of a number of plant viral genomes. The location of the protease activity of the polyprotein is at the C-terminal end, adjacent and N-terminal to the putative RNA polymerase [PMID: 9683576, PMID: 15503215].
