Domain

Peptidase M16C associated (IPR013578)

Short name: Peptidase_M16C_assoc

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain appears in eukaryotes as well as bacteria and tends to be found near the C terminus of metalloproteases and related sequences belonging to MEROPS peptidase family M16 (subfamily M16C, clan ME), PreP subfamily. PREP is an ATP-independent protease that degrades both mitochondrial and chloroplastic transit peptides after their cleavage. It also degrades other unstructured peptides [PMID: 12138166].
