Resuscitation-promoting factors possess a lysozyme-like domain.
TRENDS BIOCHEM SCI
7 - 10.
The novel bacterial cytokine family - resuscitation-promoting factors (Rpfs) - share a conserved domain of uncharacterized function. Predicting the structure of this domain suggests that Rpfs possess a lysozyme-like domain. The model highlights the good conservation of residues involved in catalysis and substrate binding. A lysozyme-like function makes sense for this domain in the light of experimental characterization of the biological function of Rpfs.
