VxXXA (P01686) Protein Card

General Information
Name VxXXA
Alternative name(s) Vx20.1,VxXIIA
Organism Conus vexillum
Organism region Indo-Pacific
Organism diet vermivorous
Protein Type Wild type
Protein precursor VxXXA precursor (3630)
Vx105 precursor (7050)
Notes Framework: This framework was assigned to be XII on discovery of VxXXA , VxXXB and VxXXC (previously named VxXIIA, VxXIIB and VxXIIC respectively) 2006, which also had been used for conotoxins from the I superfamily (Brown et al. 2005). Loughnan et al. now propose framework designation XX (see reference).

Dimers: Mature D superfamily peptides form hetero-, homo- and pseudohomodimers (identical sequence, different posttranslational modifications). Entries for mature peptides in ConoServer are for monomers.

The swiss-prot card describes positions 25 and 29 as being hydroxyprolines which is in contradiction with Loughnan et al 2006.
