Uncharacterised conserved protein UCP036541 (IPR011414)

Short name: UCP036541_AIR

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


Members of this family belong to a large group that also contains thiamine monophosphate kinase, hydrogenase maturation factor HypE (IPR011854), AIR synthase, FGAM synthase (PIRSF001587), selenophosphate synthase (IPR004536), and other groups. In AIR synthase, the N-terminal domain forms the dimer interface of the protein and, upon dimerisation, forms the putative ATP binding domain, while the cleft formed between the N- and C-terminal domains is postulated to be a sulphate binding site [PMID: 10508786]. It could be speculated that similar structure-function relationship exists in members of this family; however, there is no experimental data that proves the biochemical activity.
