The annotation and conditions in this rule are derived from the following entries: P08582 (TRFM_HUMAN), P02787 (TRFE_HUMAN), Q9DBD0 (ICA_MOUSE), P02788 (TRFL_HUMAN)

If a protein meets these conditions... i

Common conditions

    • Matches PIR Superfamily signature PIRSF002549
    • sequence length = 571 - 771
    • taxon = Eukaryota
    • fragment ≠ the sequence is fragmented

Special conditions

... then these annotations are applied i
