Matrilin, coiled-coil domain superfamily (IPR036337)

Short name: Matrilin_cc_sf

Overlapping entries


This entry represents a short domain found the matrilin (cartilage matrix) proteins. It forms a coiled coil structure and contains a single cysteine residue at its start which is likely to form a di-sulphide bridge with a corresponding cysteine in an upstream EGF domain, thereby spanning the VWA domain of the protein (IPR002035).This domain is likely to be responsible for protein trimerisation [PMID: 9287130, PMID: 9260286].
