Accepted name: picornain 3C
Reaction: Selective cleavage of Gln┼Gly bond in the poliovirus polyprotein. In other picornavirus reactions Glu may be substituted for Gln, and Ser or Thr for Gly
Other name(s): picornavirus endopeptidase 3C; poliovirus protease 3C; rhinovirus protease 3C; foot-and-mouth protease 3C; poliovirus proteinase 3C; rhinovirus proteinase 3C; coxsackievirus 3C proteinase; foot-and-mouth-disease virus proteinase 3C; 3C protease; 3C proteinase; cysteine proteinase 3C; hepatitis A virus 3C proteinase; protease 3C; tomato ringspot nepovirus 3C-related protease
Comments: From entero-, rhino-, aphto- and cardioviruses. Larger than the homologous virus picornain 2A. Type example of peptidase family C3
