Entry authors: Liaw SH, Chen SJ, Hu CY, Chi WK, Chu ID, Hwang LH, Chern JW, Chen DS

Function and Biology Details

Reactions catalysed:
ATP + H(2)O = ADP + phosphate. 
NTP + H(2)O = NDP + phosphate. 
Hydrolysis of four peptide bonds in the viral precursor polyprotein, commonly with Asp or Glu in the P6 position, Cys or Thr in P1 and Ser or Ala in P1'. 
Nucleoside triphosphate + RNA(n) = diphosphate + RNA(n+1).
