Thrombospondin, type 3-like repeat (IPR003367)

Short name: Thrombospondin_3-like_rpt


The thrombospondin repeat is a short aspartate rich repeat which binds to calcium ions. The repeat was initially identified in thrombospondin proteins that contained 7 of these repeats [PMID: 2430973]. The repeat lacks defined secondary structure [PMID: 15014436].

This entry represents the type 3 thrombospondin repeat found in proteins of the thrombospondin family and related repeats present in other types of proteins.
