Peptidoglycan recognition protein family domain, metazoa/bacteria (IPR006619)

Short name: PGRP_domain_met/bac

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships


This domain is found in a family of animal peptidoglycan recognition proteins homologous to Bacteriophage T3 lysozyme [PMID: 9707603], and some bacterial homologues. The bacteriophage molecule, but not its moth homologue, has been shown to have N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase activity. One member of this family, Tag7, is a cytokine [PMID: 9660837].
