Single domain von Willebrand factor type C
SMART accession number:SM01318
Description: SVWC is a family of single-domain von Willebrand factor type C proteins from lower eukaryotes. The canonical pattern of most von Willebrand factor type C (VWC) domains is of ten cysteines, however this family, largely but not exclusively of arthropod proteins, contains only eight. SVWC family proteins respond to environmental challenges, such as bacterial infection and nutritional status. They also are involved in anti-viral immunity, and all of these functions seem linked to SVWC expression being induced by Dicer2.
