Cysteine-rich repeat (IPR006150)

Short name: Cys_repeat_1


This repeat, originally named as Worm-specific repeat type 1, is found in several Caenorhabditis elegans proteins, as well as some other eukaryotes. The region contains several conserved cysteines that probably form disulphide bridges and is often found associated with kunitz domains IPR002223 that may function as serine peptidase inhibitors; these belong to MEROPS peptidase inhibitor family I2.
