Data class Domain
Predictors PROSITE; PS51531; FV_PR
Name Foamy virus protease (FV PR) domain
Function The FV PR domain forms peptidase family A9 (spumapepsin family). Retrovriral PRs belong to the family of aspartic proteases and are active as homodimers, with the active site triplets (Asp-Thr/Ser-Gly; D-T/S-G) from both chain contributing to the symetric active site of the enzyme.
