A unique signature identifies a family of zinc-dependent metallopeptidases
Journal Article --- Old month value: Jan 2
The primary sequence motif HExxH has been found in many zinc-dependent endopeptidases. We show that a larger signature comprising this sequence is common to most of the known zinc-dependent endopeptidases, and that the presence of the signature can be indicative of membership in the family. A search of the protein sequence databases for entries containing the signature retrieved several unexpected potential zinc endopeptidases.
