Molecular Evolution of the Myeloperoxidase Family

  title={Molecular Evolution of the Myeloperoxidase Family},
  author={Hiromi Daiyasu and Hiroyuki Toh},
  journal={Journal of Molecular Evolution},
Animal myeloperoxidase and its relatives constitute a diverse protein family, which includes myeloperoxidase, eosinophil peroxidase, thyroid peroxidase, salivary peroxidase, lactoperoxidase, ovoperoxidase, peroxidasin, peroxinectin, cyclooxygenase, and others. The members of this protein family share a catalytic domain of about 500 amino acid residues in length, although some members have distinctive mosaic structures. To investigate the evolution of the protein family, we performed a… CONTINUE READING
