Family

Phytosulfokine (IPR009438)

Short name: Phytosulfokine

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of several plant specific phytosulfokine precursor proteins. Phytosulfokines, are active as either a pentapeptide or a C-terminally truncated tetrapeptide. These compounds were first isolated because of their ability to stimulate cell division in somatic embryo cultures of Asparagus officinalis [PMID: 12049922].
