Flagellinolysin-DB: a database of flagellinolysin genes predicted from the NCBI


Last Updated: May 27, 2018


Summary: Flagellinolysin is a recently discovered variant of bacterial flagellin that contains a zinc-metalloproteinase within the central, hypervariable region. In Clostridium haemolyticum, flagellinolysin localizes to the surfaces of flagellar filaments and renders flagella with extracellular protease activity. The biological role of flagellum-mediated extracellular proteolysis is still unclear. Below is a list of all flagellinolysins that we have predicted from the NCBI to date.
