Crustacean cuticle (IPR012539)

Short name: Cuticle_1

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



This family consists of the cuticle proteins from the Cancer pagurus (Rock crab) and the Homarus americanus (American lobster). These proteins are isolated from the calcified regions of the crustacean and they contain two copies of an 18 residue sequence motif, which thus far has been found only in crustacean calcified exoskeletons [PMID: 10425740].
