Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0000255
UniProt IDQ86WA6
Primary gene name(s)BPHL
Synonym gene name(s)MCNAA
Protein nameValacyclovir hydrolase
Protein functionSerine hydrolase that catalyzes the hydrolytic activation of amino acid ester prodrugs of nucleoside analogs such as valacyclovir and valganciclovir. Activates valacyclovir to acyclovir. May play a role in detoxification processes. It is a specific alpha-amino acid ester hydrolase that prefers small, hydrophobic, and aromatic side chains and does not have a stringent requirement for the leaving group other than preferring a primary alcohol. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:18256025}.
