Short name: PGRP

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This is a group of animal peptidoglycan recognition proteins homologous to Bacteriophage T3 lysozyme [PMID: 9707603]. The bacteriophage molecule, but not its moth homologue, has been shown to have N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase activity. One member, Tag7, is a cytokine [PMID: 9660837].
