PGRP

Animal peptidoglycan recognition proteins homologous to Bacteriophage T3 lysozyme.
PGRP
SMART accession number:SM00701
Description: The bacteriophage molecule, but not its moth homologue, has been shown to have N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase activity. One member of this family, Tag7, is a cytokine.
Interpro abstract (IPR006619):

This domain is found in a family of animal peptidoglycan recognition proteins homologous to Bacteriophage T3 lysozyme [ (PUBMED:9707603) ], and some bacterial homologues. The bacteriophage molecule, but not its moth homologue, has been shown to have N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase activity. One member of this family, Tag7, is a cytokine [ (PUBMED:9660837) ].

GO process:peptidoglycan catabolic process (GO:0009253)
GO function:zinc ion binding (GO:0008270), N-acetylmuramoyl-L-alanine amidase activity (GO:0008745)
