Assemblin, a herpes virus serine maturational proteinase and new molecular target for antivirals

Summary

Herpes group viruses encode a serine proteinase that is essential for the production of infectious virus. This chapter summarizes our current understanding of its biochemical and enzymatic properties, and considers its potential as a target for antivirals.
