Conserved Site

5'-Nucleotidase, conserved site (IPR006146)

Short name: 5'-Nucleotdase_CS


5'-nucleotidases (EC: are enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of phosphate esterified at carbon 5' of the ribose and deoxyribose portions of nucleotide molecules. 5'-nucleotidase is a ubiquitous enzyme found in a wide variety of species and which occurs in different cellular locations. All these proteins share regions of sequence similarity, this signature pattern is located in the N- terminal section of these enzymes and contains a perfectly conserved pentapeptide.
