Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Domain relationships



This entry represents the cathlecidin antimicrobial C-terminal peptides. The C terminus is cleaved from the cathlecidin precursor, and is approximately 30 amino acids in length with a helical structure. This entry is found in association with PF00666. The C terminus peptides possess antimicrobial activity by virtue of their binding to bacterial lipopolysaccharides [PMID: 16637646][PMID: 18818205].
