NSP10 is a major regulator of coronavirus replicase function. NSP10 contains two zinc fingers and binds and stimulates both NSP14 and NSP16 activities. Researchers has found that the nsp10 surface that interacts with nsp14 and nsp16 and possibly other subunits of the viral replication complex may be a target for the development of antiviral compounds against pathogenic coronaviruses.
