Description

This region is of unknown function, which is found at the C terminus of archaeal preflagellin peptidase [PMID: 14622420, PMID: 21765428]. The preflagellin peptidase is a membrane-bound enzyme topologically similar to its counterpart in the type IV pilus system (prepilin peptidase); the two enzymes utilizing the same catalytic mechanism [PMID: 16983194]. The preflagellin peptidase is required for the removal of the leader peptide from archaeal flagellin [PMID: 14622420].
