Family

Encapsulating protein for peroxidase (IPR007544)

Short name: Linocin_M18

Family relationships

None.

Description

The Linocin_M18 is found in eubacteria and archaea. These proteins, referred to as encapsulins, form nanocompartments within the bacterium which contain ferritin-like proteins or peroxidases, enzymes involved in oxidative-stress response. These enzymes are targeted to the interior of encapsulins via unique C-terminal extensions [PMID: 19172747].
