Processing of dengue virus type 2 polyprotein precursor NS3-NS4A-NS4B-NS5 could be mediated by the catalytically active NS3 protease domain and NS2B in trans at the dibasic sites NS3-NS4A and NS4B-NS5. Subcellular localization of the unprocessed precursor NS3-NS4A-NS4B-NS5 showed that it was confined to a distinct subcellular organelle in the cytoplasm, which was distinct from the distribution of the mature NS5.
