Example text

Nonstructural proteins are cleaved by the activity of two virally encoded proteases, NS2 and NS3-4A serine protease (35). Enzymatically active viral proteases are essential for productive infection in the chimpanzee model (36). Autocatalytic cleavage at the NS2/3 site is carried out by the flanking protein domains, initially believed to function as a metalloprotease, but whose structural motifs are more indicative of a zinc-stabilized cysteine protease. All other principal cleavage sites within the HCV nonstructural region are hydrolyzed by a serine protease embodied in the N-terminal domain of the NS3 protein.
