Family

Diapausin of antimicrobial peptide (IPR012525)

Short name: Antimicrobial_6

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of diapausin-related antimicrobial peptides. Diapause during periods of environmental adversity is an essential part of the life cycle of many organisms with the molecular basis being different among animals. Diapause-specific peptides provide anti-fungal activity and act as N-type voltage-gated calcium channel blocker [PMID: 14706547].
