    Herein we describe the characteristic features of the Anp32 family represented by the cerebellar leucine-rich repeat protein (Lanp) and the cerebellar developmental-regulated protein 1 (Cpd1). The Anp32 family consists of 32 evolutionarilyconserved proteins and is included within the superfamily...

    The leucine-rich repeat is a widespread structural motif of 20–30 amino acids with a characteristic repetitive sequence pattern rich in leucines. Leucine-rich repeat domains are built from tandems of two or more repeats and form curved solenoid structures that are particularly suitable...

    Background: Extracellular leucine-rich repeat (eLRR) proteins are a highly diverse superfamily of membrane-associated or secreted proteins. In the membrane-associated eLRR proteins, the leucine-rich repeat motifs interact with the extracellular matrix and other ligands. Characterizing their...

  • The relationship between the L1 and L2 domains of the insulin and epidermal growth factor receptors and leucine-rich repeat modules. Ward, Colin W.; Garrett, Thomas P. J. // BMC Bioinformatics;2001, Vol. 2, p4 

    Background: Leucine-rich repeats are one of the more common modules found in proteins. The leucine-rich repeat consensus motif is LxxLxLxxNxLxxLxxLxxLxx- where the first 11-12 residues are highly conserved and the remainder of the repeat can vary in size Leucine-rich repeat proteins have been...

    � Aims Receptors for plant hormones are becoming identified with increasing rapidity, although a frustrating number remain unknown. There have also been many more hormone-binding proteins described than receptors. This Botanical Briefing summarizes what has been discovered about hormone...

  • Why Chemokines are Cytokines while their Receptors are not Cytokine Ones? Goncharova, Larisa B.; Tarakanov, Alexander O. // Current Medicinal Chemistry;2008, Vol. 15 Issue 13, p1297 

    Chemotactic cytokines, or chemokines, are a large family of small proteins, which are distinguished from other cytokines in that they are the only members of the cytokine family that act on G-protein coupled receptor superfamily. This minireview tries to answer the title question by...

    Gp150 is a transmembrane glycoprotein belonging to the leucine-rich repeat (LRR) superfamily. Here we report the molecular characterization of a Gp150 homolog in Drosophila virilis, which is separated from Drosophila melanogaster by about 60 million years. A silkworm Bombyx mori Gp150 homolog...

  • Human leucine-rich repeat kinase 1 and 2: intersecting or unrelated functions? Civiero, Laura; Bubacco, Luigi // Biochemical Society Transactions;Oct2012, Vol. 40 Issue 5, p1095 

    Mutations in LRRK2 (leucine-rich repeat kinase 2) are associated with both familial and sporadic PD (Parkinson’s disease). LRRK1 (leucine-rich repeat kinase 1) shares a similar domain structure with LRRK2, but it is not linked to PD. LRRK proteins belong to a gene family known as ROCO,...
