Mosquito-borne WNV (West Nile virus) is an emerging global threat. The NS3 proteinase, which is essential for the proteolytic processing of the viral polyprotein precursor, is a promising drug target. We have isolated and biochemically characterized the recombinant, highly active NS3 proteinase. We have determined that the NS3 proteinase functions in a(More)
Using the tumor suppressor VHL protein as an example, we show that detailed analysis of conservation versus variation pattern in the multiple alignment can be coupled with the genomic pathway/complex conservation analysis to provide a more complete picture of the entire interaction/regulatory network. Results from the present study have allowed us to(More)
