Trimeric coiled-coil oligomerisation domain of matrilin
SMART accession number:SM01279
Description: This short domain is a coiled coil structure and has a single cysteine residue at the start which is likely to form a di-sulfide bridge with a corresponding cysteine in an upstream EGF (SM00181) domain thereby spanning a VWA (SM00327) domain. All three domains can be associated together as in the cartilage matrix protein matrilin, where this domain is likely to be responsible for oligomerisation PMID:9287130.
