Kell blood group glycoprotein (IPR029737)

Short name: KEL

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships

  • Peptidase M13 (IPR000718)
    • Kell blood group glycoprotein (IPR029737)


Kell blood group glycoprotein (KEL; MEROPS identifier M13.090) shares sequence homology with members of the M13 family of zinc-dependent metalloproteases and is part of the Kell blood group system (consists of KEL and XK) [PMID: 17379193]. KEL and XK are antigens linked covalently at the surface of red blood cells [PMID: 17379193]. KEL processes big endothelin-3 to generate endothelin-3 [PMID: 10438732].
