Formaecin family of antimicrobial peptides isolated from the bulldog ant Myrmecia gulosa in response to bacterial infection. Formaecins are inducible peptide antibiotics and are active against growing Escherichia coli but were inactive against other Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. Formaecin peptides are 16 amino acids long, are rich in proline and have N-acetylgalactosamine O-linked to a conserved threonine [PMID: 9497332].
FormaecinP_2, FormaecinP16_2
FormaecinH_2, FormaecinH16_2

The format for Signature ID is the family name, followed by H or P for HMM or Pattern respectively. The integer suffixed to H or P denotes the length of the sequences used to create the family signature. If no integer is suffixed, it indicates that the signature was created using all the sequences of the family. The integer following the underscore denotes the number of sequences used for the creation of signatures.

For example:
AureinH_21 is a HMM for Aurein family created using 21 sequences.
AureinP16_9 is a pattern for Aurein family derived using 9 input sequences that are 16 residues long.
