NSP3 PL2proNSP3 PL2pro

NSP3 PL2pro

Structure PDB ID 7JRN of PL2pro with attached Ubl2 domain (purple) and bound to inhibitor GRL-0617. In addition to Ubl2, PL2pro consists of the fingers- (dark blue, left), thumb- (cyan, right), and palm-subdomains (light blue, bottom). The catalytic active site is highlighted in the lower introspection, the blocking loop interacting with the inhibitor is highlighted in the upper introspection. S2 binding site is located at Phe69. Location of S1 varies depending on the substrate and is therefore not labelled. The pink helix α7 interacts with ISG15 binding at S1.
