Novel recognition sequence of coxsackievirus 2A proteinase.


Coxsackievirus B1 (CVB1) 2A proteinase (2A(pro)) is a cysteine proteinase that cleaves the viral monocistronic polyprotein between the C-terminus of the VP1 region and the N-terminus of the 2A region, and also shuts off translational initiation in host cells by cleavage of eukaryotic initiation factor 4G (eIF4G) isoforms. We expressed in Escherichia coli a… (More)
