armadillo repeat
Protein motif comprising 42 amino acids, originally described in the Drosophila armadillo protein. Usually found in multiple repeats that form a superhelix of helices with a positively charged groove. Mediates interactions with proteins such as cadherins, Tcf-family transcription factors, and the tumor suppressor gene Adenomatous Polyposis Coli.
