Homologous Superfamily

Proteinase/amylase inhibitor domain superfamily (IPR011052)

Short name: Proteinase_amylase_inhib_sf

Overlapping entries


This superfamily includes inhibitors of proteinases and amylases, such as trypsin inhibitors (IPR000737) [PMID: 12198301], carboxypeptidase A inhibitors (IPR004231) [PMID: 12557184], and alpha-amylase inhibitors (AAI) [PMID: 11298757]. The proteins display a knottins-like (small inhibitors, toxins, lectins) disulphide-bound fold, containing a beta-hairpin with two adjacent disulphides.
