Domain

Peptidase C25 (IPR001769)

Short name: Peptidase_C25

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found in cysteine peptidases belonging to MEROPS peptidase family C25 (gingipain). Gingipains are cysteine proteinases acting as key virulence factors of the bacterium Porphyromonas gingivalis (Bacteroides gingivalis), a Gram-negative anaerobic bacterial species strongly associated with adult periodontitis [PMID: 10523290].
