3.4.23.B4: Feline immunodeficiency virus protease

This is an abbreviated version, for detailed information about Feline immunodeficiency virus protease, go to the full flat file.

Reaction

the enzyme seems to have a preference for Val in P1' and Phe in P1. In contrast to the HIV-1 protease the feline immunodeficiency virus protease does not cleave the peptide KSGVFVQNGLVK at the Phe-Val bond. Gln in P2' may be inhibitory. In contrast to HIV-1 protease the feline immunodeficiency virus protease does not cleave peptide KSGNFVVNGLVK at the Phe-Val bond. Asn in P2 may be inhibitory =
