ABSTRACT The flavivirus NS2B-NS3(pro)teinase is an essential element in the proteolytic processing of the viral precursor polyprotein and therefore a potential drug target. Recently, crystal structures and substrate preferences of NS2B-NS3pro from Dengue and West Nile viruses (DV and WNV) were determined. We established that the presence of Gly-Gly at the P1′-P2′ positions is optimal for cleavage by WNV NS3pro, whereas DV NS3pro tolerates well the presence of bulky residues at either P1′ or P2… Expand
Structure-guided mutagenesis of active site residues in the dengue virus two-component protease NS2B-NS3
TLDR
Kinetic data obtained for mutants in the NS3 protease have confirmed predictions for the conformation of the active site S1 and S2 pockets based on earlier observations, and will be useful to further explore structure-activity relationships of the flaviviral proteases important for the structure-guided design of novel antiviral therapeutics.

This work provides a structural framework for the design of inhibitors, which could be used as a lead structure for drug development efforts, and designs a selective substrate and activity-based probe for the Dengue NS2B-NS3 protease. Expand
A comparative biochemical analysis of the NS2B(H)-NS3pro protease complex from four dengue virus serotypes.
TLDR
This study addressed the question of functional similarity among the NS2B(H)-NS3pro proteases from 4 dengue virus serotypes by employing a uniform approach to clone, purify and assay proteolytic activity of these enzymes. Expand
The Two-component NS2B-NS3 Proteinase Represses DNA Unwinding Activity of the West Nile Virus NS3 Helicase*
TLDR
The data suggest that the productive, catalytically competent fold of the NS2B-NS3 proteinase moiety represents an essential component of the RNA-DNA substrate selectivity mechanism in WNV and, possibly, in other flaviviruses. Expand
Detection and in-cell selectivity profiling of the full-length West Nile virus NS2B/NS3 serine protease using membrane-anchored fluorescent substrates
TLDR
This study is the first to provide cellular insights into the biological and enzymatic properties of a prime target for inhibitors of WNV replication, and demonstrates the robustness of the trans-cleavage fluorescence assay to capture single-cell imaging of membrane-associated WNV NS2B/NS3 endoproteolytic activity.

Determinants of duck Tembusu virus NS2A/2B polyprotein procession attenuated viral replication and proliferation in vitro
TLDR
The DTMUV replicon and an infectious clone showed that the P1 site is essential to viral replication, while a mutation in P1′ could boost viral RNA replication and the NS2A/2B cleavage sites processed by theNS2B3 protease are vital for D TMUV proliferation and virulence. Expand
