Phox/Bem1p (IPR000270)

Short name: OPR_PB1

Domain relationships



The Phox and Bem1p domain, is present in many eukaryotic cytoplasmic signalling proteins. The domain adopts a beta-grasp fold, similar to that found in ubiquitin and Ras-binding domains. A motif, variously termed OPR, PC and AID, represents the most conserved region of the majority of PB1 domains, and is necessary for PB1 domain function. This function is the formation of PB1 domain heterodimers, although not all PB1 domain pairs associate.
