  Domain Name: BPI
BPI/LBP/CETP domain; Bactericidal permeability-increasing protein (BPI) / Lipopolysaccharide-binding protein (LBP) / Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) domain; binds to and neutralizes lipopolysaccharides from the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria.; Apolar pockets on the concave surface bind a molecule of phosphatidylcholine, primarily by interacting with their acyl chains; this suggests that the pockets may also bind the acyl chains of lipopolysaccharide.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.

Total Mutations Found: 32
Total Disease Mutations Found: 0
This domain occurred 10 times on human genes (18 proteins).

 If you've navigated here from a protein, hovering over a position on the weblogo will display the corresponding protein position for that domain position.

 The histograms below the weblogo indicate mutations found on the domain. Red is for disease (OMIM) and blue is for SNPs.

 Functional Features are displayed as orange boxes under the histograms. You can choose which features are displayed in the box below.
