Description

This entry represents the N-terminal approximately 100 amino acids of a family of proteins found in a range of organisms, including human, chicken and Drosophila [PMID: 10591208, PMID: 15642098, PMID: 12537572]. It contains between six and eight highly conserved cysteine residues and a characteristic DPF sequence motif. One member is putatively named as receptor for egg jelly protein but this could not confirmed.
