Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for P06935: 6
Capsid protein C self-assembles to form an icosahedral capsid about 30 nm in diameter. The capsid encapsulates the genomic RNA. (data source: UniProt  )
prM acts as a chaperone for envelope protein E during intracellular virion assembly by masking and inactivating envelope protein E fusion peptide. prM is matured in the last step of virion assembly, presumably to avoid catastrophic activation of the viral fusion peptide induced by the acidic pH of the trans-Golgi network. After cleavage by host furin, the pr peptide is released in the extracellular medium and small envelope protein M and envelope protein E homodimers are dissociated. (data source: UniProt  )

Envelope protein E binding to host cell surface receptor is followed by virus internalization through clathrin-mediated endocytosis. Envelope protein E is subsequently involved in membrane fusion between virion and host late endosomes. Synthesized as a homodimer with prM which acts as a chaperone for envelope protein E. After cleavage of prM, envelope protein E dissociate from small envelope protein M and homodimerizes. (data source: UniProt  )
Non-structural protein 1 is involved in virus replication and regulation of the innate immune response. (data source: UniProt  )
Non-structural protein 2A may be involved viral RNA replication and capsid assembly. (data source: UniProt  )
Non-structural protein 2B is a required cofactor for the serine protease function of NS3. (data source: UniProt  )
Serine protease NS3 displays three enzymatic activities: serine protease, NTPase and RNA helicase. NS3 serine protease, in association with NS2B, performs its autocleavage and cleaves the polyprotein at dibasic sites in the cytoplasm: C-prM, NS2A-NS2B, NS2B-NS3, NS3-NS4A, NS4A-2K and NS4B-NS5. NS3 RNA helicase binds RNA and unwinds dsRNA in the 3' to 5' direction. (data source: UniProt  )
Non-structural protein 4A induces host endoplasmic reticulum membrane rearrangements leading to the formation of virus-induced membranous vesicles hosting the dsRNA and polymerase, functioning as a replication complex. NS4A might also regulate the ATPase activity of the NS3 helicase. (data source: UniProt  )
Peptide 2k functions as a signal peptide for NS4B and is required for the interferon antagonism activity of the latter. (data source: UniProt  )
Non-structural protein 4B inhibits interferon (IFN)-induced host STAT1 phosphorylation and nuclear translocation, thereby preventing the establishment of cellular antiviral state by blocking the IFN-alpha/beta pathway. (data source: UniProt  )
RNA-directed RNA polymerase NS5 replicates the viral (+) and (-) genome, and performs the capping of genomes in the cytoplasm. NS5 methylates viral RNA cap at guanine N-7 and ribose 2'-O positions. Besides its role in genome replication, also prevents the establishment of cellular antiviral state by blocking the interferon-alpha/beta (IFN-alpha/beta) signaling pathway. Inhibits host JAK1 and TYK2 phosphorylation, thereby preventing activation of JAK-STAT signaling pathway. (data source: UniProt  )
Catalytic Activity

S-adenosyl-L-methionine + a 5'-N7-methyl 5'-triphosphoguanosine-purine-ribonucleotide-mRNA = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + a 5'-N7-methyl 5'-triphosphoguanosine-2'-O-methyl-purine-ribonucleotide-mRNA.

(data source: UniProt  )
Subunit structure
Capsid protein C forms homodimers. prM and envelope protein E form heterodimers in the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi. In immature particles, there are 60 icosaedrally organized trimeric spikes on the surface. Each spike consists of three heterodimers of envelope protein M precursor (prM) and envelope protein E. NS1 forms homodimers as well as homohexamers when secreted. NS1 may interact with NS4A. NS3 and NS2B form a heterodimer. NS3 is the catalytic subunit, whereas NS2B strongly stimulates the latter, acting as a cofactor. In the absence of the NS2B, NS3 protease is unfolded and inactive. NS3 interacts with unphosphorylated NS5; this interaction stimulates NS5 guanylyltransferase activity. (data source: UniProt  )

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
