Domain

TRAM/LAG1/CLN8 homology domain (IPR006634)

Short name: TLC-dom

Domain relationships

None.

Description

TLC is a protein domain with at least 5 transmembrane alpha-helices. Lag1p and Lac1p are essential for acyl-CoA-dependent ceramide synthesis [PMID: 11694577], TRAM is a subunit of the translocon and the CLN8 gene is mutated in Northern epilepsy syndrome. Proteins containing this domain may possess multiple functions such as lipid trafficking, metabolism, or sensing. Trh homologues possess additional homeobox domains [PMID: 9872981].
