Structural modelling of the RTBV protease. Structural modelling of the RTBV protease (A), and Rous sarcoma virus (RSV) protease used as template (B). The sphere indicates the N-terminal end, aspartic acid of active site is shown in the stick model. In red is the RSV protease inhibitor 39 coupled to the active site. The first residues of RTBV PR could not be modelled. Conservation of the active site and overall fold recognition analyses with modelling building show that the RTBV sequence resembles greatly a protease fold.
