Collagen binding domain (IPR008456)

Short name: Collagen-bd_dom

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Domain relationships



The domain fold is a jelly-roll, composed of two antiparallel beta-sheets and two short alpha-helices [PMID: 9334749]. A groove on beta-sheet I exhibited the best surface complementarity to the collagen. This site partially overlaps with the peptide sequence previously shown to be critical for collagen binding. Recombinant proteins containing single amino acid mutations designed to disrupt the surface of the putative binding site exhibited significantly lower affinities for collagen.
