    NS3 protease of hepatitis C virus (HCV), located on the N-terminal domain of HCV NS3, is responsible for the cleavage at the NS3/NS4A, NS4A/NS4B, NS4B/NS5A, and NS5A/NS5B sites of the nonstructural protein. The HCV NS3 is a chymotrypsin-like serine protease. It requires a cofactor, a 54 amino acid NS4 protein, to reach its optimal activity. The X-ray crystal structure studies show that NS3 forms a tight non-covalent complex with NS4. The NS3/4A protease is essential for viral replication and the formation of infectious viral particles.

  • 関連性The nonstructural protein NS3 of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) is indispensable for virus replication and a multifunctional enzyme that contains three catalytic activities such as serine protease, helicase, and NTPase. The N-terminal domain of the protein contains protease activity and the C-terminal domain contains nucleotide triphosphatase and RNA helicase activity. It has been shown that NS2/3 cleavage is mediated by NS2-3 protease, whereas NS3 serine protease is responsible for the other four cleavage sites of the nonstructural (NS) region. Immunoblot analysis on serum samples from 90 patients with chronic hepatitis C virus infection revealed four putative immunogenic regions within the NS3 protein of the virus: E (around amino acids 1250/1251), A (within amino acids 1250-1334), A/B (around amino acids 1323 and 1334), and B/C (around amino acids 1407 and 1412). Among them, region E was most immunodominant, and region A was recognized much less frequently by patients with cirrhosis than by those with chronic hepatitis.
