EC Equine arterivirus serine peptidase. [-]    

Reaction: Cleavage of (Glu/Gln)-|-(Gly/Ser/Ala) in arterivirus replicase translation products ORF1a and ORF1ab.
Other name(s): 3C-like Ser protease. 3C-like serine protease. 3Clsp. Arterivirus NSP4. Chymotrypsin-like serine proteinase nsp4. Equine arteritis virus serine peptidase. Nonstructural protein 4 serine protease.
Comments: In the equine arterivirus (EAV), the replicase gene is translated into open reading frame 1a (ORF1a) and ORF1ab polyproteins. This enzyme is the main viral proteinase and processes five cleavage sites in the ORF1a protein and three in the ORF1b-encoded part of the ORF1ab protein to yield nonstructural proteins (nsp5-nsp12). It combines the catalytic system of a chymotrypsin-like serine peptidase (His-Asp-Ser catalytic triad) with the substrate specificity of a 3C-like serine peptidase (Glu or Gln) at the P1 position and a small amino-acid residue (Gly, Ser or Ala) at the P1' position.
