A domain in the BMP inhibitor chordin and in microbial proteins.
SMART accession number:SM00754
Description: -
Interpro abstract (IPR010895):

CHRD (after SWISS-PROT abbreviation for chordin) is a novel domain identified in chordin, an inhibitor of bone morphogenetic proteins. This family includes bacterial homologues. It is anticipated to have an immunoglobulin-like beta-barrel structure based on limited similarity to superoxide dismutases but, as yet, no clear functional prediction can be made [ (PUBMED:13678956) ].
