Functional Sites in Proteins
Accession:
Functional site class:
Melanisation activation site
Functional site description:
Prophenoloxidase activation cleavage site is cut by the PPAE enzyme which is also inhibited by some serpins. Activation leads to melanisation of invasive organisms.
ELM Description:
Prophenoloxidase-activation proteinase is Anthropoda specific proprotein convertase. It activates the melanisation process, which is a common response to parasite entry in invertebrate animals. Similar to several other proprotein convertases it cleaves polypeptide at carboxy-site of arginine. Note that this cleavage usually occurs at unstructured N-terminal end of target proteins.
Pattern: [ILV]..R[VF][GS].
Pattern Probability: 0.0001054
Present in taxon: Arthropoda
Interaction Domain:
Trypsin (PF00089) Trypsin (Stochiometry: 1 : 1)
