BspA type Leucine rich repeat region (IPR026906)

Short name: LRR_5


This entry represents a leucine rich repeat. A leucine-rich repeat (LRR) is a protein structural motif that forms an alpha/beta horseshoe fold [PMID: 7817399, PMID: 14747988]. Leucine-rich repeats are frequently involved in the formation of protein protein interactions [PMID: 11751054, PMID: 1657640].

This repeat is found in a large number of BSPA-like surface antigens from Trichomonas vaginalis.
