CXCXC repeat (IPR004153)

Short name: CXCXC_repeat


This repeat contains the conserved pattern CXCXC where X can be any amino acid. The repeat is found in up to five copies in Vascular endothelial growth factor C [PMID: 8612600]. In the salivary glands of the dipteran Chironomus tentans, a specific messenger ribonucleoprotein (mRNP) particle, the Balbiani ring (BR) granule, can be visualized during its assembly on the gene and during its nucleocytoplasmic transport. This repeat is found over 70 copies in the balbiani ring protein 3 (Q03376). It is also found in some silk proteins [PMID: 9089085].
