Alkylhydroperoxidase AhpD core (IPR004675)

Short name: AhpD_core

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships


This entry represents a 51-residue core region of homology among a group of mostly uncharacterised proteins of 110 to 227 amino acids. Most members in this entry contain the motif Exxxxxx[SA]xxxxC[VIL]xCxxxH. Proteins containing this domain include the alkylhydroperoxidase AhpD of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, a macrophage infectivity potentiator peptide of Legionella pneumophila, and an uncharacterised peptide in the tetrachloroethene reductive dehalogenase operon of Dehalospirillum multivorans. These proteins may have alkylhydroperoxidase or related antioxidant activity.
