Repeat

Leucine rich repeat 4 (IPR025875)

Short name: Leu-rich_rpt_4

Description

This entry represents 2 copies of a leucine rich repeat.

Leucine rich repeats are short sequence motifs present in a number of proteins with diverse functions and cellular locations. These repeats are usually involved in protein-protein interactions. Each leucine rich repeat is composed of a beta-alpha unit. These units form elongated non-globular structures. Leucine rich repeats are often flanked by cysteine rich domains.
