Peptidase S7, Flavivirus NS3 serine protease Provide feedback
The viral genome is a positive strand RNA that encodes a single polyprotein precursor. Processing of the polyprotein precursor into mature proteins is carried out by the host signal peptidase and by NS3 serine protease, which requires NS2B (PF01002) as a cofactor .

The viral genome of Flavivirus is a positive strand RNA that encodes a single polyprotein precursor. Processing of the polyprotein precursor into mature proteins is carried out by the host signal peptidase and by NS3 serine protease, which requires NS2B (INTERPRO) as a cofactor [PUBMED:10026173].
Pathogenic members of the flavivirus family, including West Nile Virus (WNV) and Dengue Virus (DV), are growing global threats for which there are no specific treatments. The genome encodes three structural proteins found in the mature virion (C, prM, and E) and seven "nonstructural" (i.e., not part of the virion architecture) proteins (NS1, NS2A, NS2B, NS3, NS4A, NS4B, and NS5). Full-length NS3 is a bifunctional protein. The N-terminal 175 residues comprise a chymotrypsin-like protease, while the C-terminal portion is a helicase. The NS2B protein, which is located in the polypeptide precursor immediately upstream of the NS3 protease domain, functions as the cofactor for NS3 protease. A 35-48 residue central portion is required for protease activity in vitro, while N- and C-terminal flanking hydrophobic regions are predicted to anchor the NS2B-NS3 complex into the host endoplasmic reticulum membrane. The two component flaviviral enzyme NS2B-NS3 cleaves the viral polyprotein precursor within the host cell, a process that is required for viral replication [PUBMED:17400917, PUBMED:19693793, PUBMED:20042502]. The NS3 protease forms the MEROPS peptidase family S7 (flavivirin family), clan PA.
The NS3 protease has a classical serine protease catalytic triad (His, Asp, and Ser). The enzymatic activity is enhanced by interacting with the central 40 amino acid of NS2B which acts as an essential cofactor. The NS3 protease domain has an overall structure of two barrels made of six beta sheets each, with the active site located in the cleft between the barrels. The NS2B hydrophilic core cofactor contributes one of the N-terminal beta sheets [PUBMED:17400917, PUBMED:19693793, PUBMED:20042502].

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request

There are 3 interactions for this family. More...
We determine these interactions using iPfam, which considers the interactions between residues in three-dimensional protein structures and maps those interactions back to Pfam families. You can find more information about the iPfam algorithm in the journal article that accompanies the website.
For those sequences which have a structure in the Protein DataBank, we use the mapping between UniProt, PDB and Pfam coordinate systems from the PDBe group, to allow us to map Pfam domains onto UniProt sequences and three-dimensional protein structures. The table below shows the structures on which the Peptidase_S7 domain has been found. There are 15 instances of this domain found in the PDB. Note that there may be multiple copies of the domain in a single PDB structure, since many structures contain multiple copies of the same protein seqence.
