Peptidylarginine Deiminase Enzymes
The PADs are a family of posttranslational modification enzymes that convert positively charged protein-bound arginine and methylarginine residues to neutrally charged, non-ribosomally encoded citrulline residues. This process is referred to as citrullination or alternatively as deimination.
