This family of disulfide-rich anti-microbial peptides was found in nematodes. The first identified family member was Ascaris suum anti-bacterial factor (ASABF). These proteins are able to kill bacteria and yeast [1, 2].
The only non-nematode member of this family identified so far ist the mite allergen Blo t 19 .
Family-defining Pfam domains (at least one of these domains is present in each family member):
|Pfam domain||Pfam clan|
|PF16839||Nematode antimicrobial peptide||-|
