Domain

Protein-arginine deiminase (PAD), central domain (IPR013733)

Short name: Prot_Arg_deaminase_cen_dom

Domain relationships

None.

Description

Peptidylarginine deiminase (PAD) enzymes catalyze the conversion of protein-bound arginine to citrulline. There are five types of PADs known in humans, PAD1-PAD4 and PAD6 [PMID: 14579251]. This entry represents the central non-catalytic domain of protein-arginine deiminase. This domain has an immunoglobulin-like fold [PMID: 16567635].
