Staphopain peptidase C47 (IPR008750)

Short name: Peptidase_C47

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



Staphopains are one of four major families of proteinases secreted by the Gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus. These staphylococcal cysteine proteases are secreted as preproenzymes that are proteolytically cleaved to generate the mature enzyme [PMID: 11767947, PMID: 11447146, PMID: 12437090].
