Accepted name: SARS coronavirus main proteinase
Reaction: TSAVLQ┼SGFRK-NH2 and SGVTFQ┼GKFKK the two peptides corresponding to the two self-cleavage sites of the SARS 3C-like proteinase are the two most reactive peptide substrates. The enzyme exhibits a strong preference for substrates containing Gln at P1 position and Leu at P2 position.
Other name(s): 3cLpro; 3C-like protease; coronavirus 3C-like protease; Mpro; SARS 3C-like protease; SARS coronavirus 3CL protease; SARS coronavirus main peptidase; SARS coronavirus main protease; SARS-CoV 3CLpro enzyme; SARS-CoV main protease; SARS-CoV Mpro; severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus main protease
Comments: SARS coronavirus main protease is the key enzyme in SARS coronavirus replicase polyprotein processing. In peptidase family C30.
