Occludin homology domain (IPR010844)

Short name: Occludin_ELL

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Domain relationships



This represents a conserved region approximately 100 residues long within eukaryotic occludin proteins and the RNA polymerase II elongation factor ELL. Occludin is an integral membrane protein that localises to tight junctions [PMID: 8276896], while ELL is an elongation factor that can increase the catalytic rate of RNA polymerase II transcription by suppressing transient pausing by polymerase at multiple sites along the DNA [PMID: 8596958]. This shared domain is thought to mediate protein interactions [PMID: 8276896].
