Gene Family: Cysteine rich secretory protein family (CRISP)

Also known as : "CRISPs"
A subset of : CAP superfamily

Cysteine-rich secretory proteins: Cysteine-rich secretory proteins, often abbreviated as CRISPs, are a group of glycoproteins. They are a subgroup of the CRISP, antigen 5 and Pr-1 ( CAP ) protein superfamily and are substantially implicated in the functioning of the mammalian reproductive system. CRISPs are also found in a variety of snake venoms where they inhibit both smooth muscle contraction and cyclic nucleotide-gated ion channels. [Source: Wikipedia]
