Superfamily: Diapause-specific peptide

This superfamily includes the diapause-specific peptides (DSP). Diapause during periods of environmental adversity is an essential part of the life cycle of many organisms with the molecular basis being different among animals. Diapause-specific peptides function as anti-fungal peptides and block N-type voltage-gated calcium channels PMID:14706547. The overall structure of DSP is compact due to the three disulfide bridges that indicate a high similarity with insect- and plant-derived antifungal peptides.

The DSP structure includes two alpha-helices and a triple-stranded beta-sheet. The three disulfide bridges (Cys-7/Cys-21, Cys-11/Cys-33, and Cys-22/Cys-40) help the link between helices and the beta-sheets.
