To investigate the biochemical properties of the protease encoded by the human endogenous retrovirus, K10 (HERV-K), 213 amino acids of the 3'-end of the HERV-K protease (PR) open reading frame were expressed in Escherichia coli. Autocatalytic cleavage of the expressed polypeptide resulted in an 18.2 kDa protein which was shown to be proteolytically active(More)
