Domain

Senescence/spartin-associated (IPR009686)

Short name: Senescence/spartin

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found in a number of plant senescence-associated proteins of approximately 450 residues in length. In Hemerocallis, petals have a genetically based program that leads to senescence and cell death approximately 24 hours after the, flower opens, and it is believed that senescence proteins produced around that time have a role in this program [PMID: 10412903]. This domain is also found in a number of Spartin proteins which may be implicated in endosomal trafficking, or microtubule dynamics, or both [PMID: 12676568].
