The N-terminus of PpdC contains an N-terminal cleavage/methylation motif G-FXXXE (PF13544); the first 10 residues of PpdC may be cleaved by prepilin peptidase, making an N-terminal N-methylphenylalanine in the process. PpdC is the prototype for the DUF3728 family of predicted prepilin peptidase-modified proteins of unknown function (PF12528). PpdC is required for swarming motility (Inoue, 2006).
