Name  Peptidase C5, adenain Short Name  Peptidase_C5
Type  Family Description  Cysteine peptidases have characteristic molecular topologies, which can be seen not only in their three-dimensional structures, but commonly also in the two-dimensional structures. These are peptidases in which the nucleophile is the sulphydryl group of a cysteine residue. Cysteine proteases are divided into clans (proteins which are evolutionary related), and further sub-divided into families, on the basis of the architecture of their catalytic dyad or triad []. This group of cysteine aminopeptidases belong to the peptidase family C5 (adenain family, clan CE). Several adenovirus proteins are synthesised as precursors, requiringprocessing by a protease before the virion is assembled [, ]. Untilrecently, the adenovirus endopeptidase was classified as a serine protease,having been reported to be inhibited by serine protease inhibitors [, ].However, it has since been shown to be inhibited by cysteine proteaseinhibitors, and the catalytic residues are believed to be His-54 andCys-104 [, ].
