Family

Caleosin-related (IPR007736)

Short name: Caleosin-related

Family relationships

None.

Description

Caleosins are a family of lipid-associated proteins that are ubiquitous in plants and true fungi. In plants, caleosinss are Ca(2+)-binding oil-body surface proteins [PMID: 16961733]. Later, caleosin was identified as a putative peroxygenase, which is involved in oxylipin metabolism during biotic and abiotic stress responses in Arabidopsis [PMID: 19467604]. The calcium binding domain is probably related to the calcium-binding EF-hands motif IPR002048.
