Conserved Site

ArgE/DapE/ACY1/CPG2/YscS, conserved site (IPR001261)

Short name: ArgE/DapE_CS


This group contains metallopeptidases belonging to MEROPS peptidase family M20 (clan MH), subfamilies M20A and M20B; many are classified as unassigned peptidases or non-peptidase homologues.

In addition to the metallopeptidases this group of sequences contain a variety of other protein families from the archaea, bacteria and eukaryota that hydrolyse substrates that share a common structure and are dependent on cobalt or zinc for their activity [PMID: 11250542]. They include:
