Accepted name: adenain
Reaction: Cleaves proteins of the adenovirus and its host cell at two consensus sites: -Yaa-Xaa-Gly-Gly┼Xaa- and -Yaa-Xaa-Gly-Xaa┼Gly- (in which Yaa is Met, Ile or Leu, and Xaa is any amino acid)
Comments: A cysteine endopeptidase from adenoviruses, the type example of peptidase family C5, with a protein fold unlike that known for any other peptidase [2]. Activity is greatly stimulated by the binding to the enzyme of an 11-residue peptide from the adenovirus capsid protein pre-VI at a site separate from the active site [1]
