Janus (IPR007702)

Short name: Janus

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This family is comprised of the 14 kDa phosphohistidine phosphatase from mammals and Janus-A/Janus-B proteins from Drosophila melanogaster. Janus-A and Janus-B regulate somatic sex differentiation and have been found to be testes specific [PMID: 11319264]. 14 kDa phosphohistidine phosphatase is a histidine phosphatase that may play a role of reversible histidine phosphorylation in neuronal functions [PMID: 12468887].
