RED-like, N-terminal (IPR012916)

Short name: RED_N

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Domain relationships



This domain contains sequences that are similar to the N-terminal region of Red protein (Q13123). This and related proteins contain a RED repeat which consists of a number of RE and RD sequence elements [PMID: 10216252]. The region in question has several conserved NLS sequences and a putative trimeric coiled-coil region [PMID: 10216252], suggesting that these proteins are expressed in the nucleus [PMID: 10216252]. The function of Red protein is unknown, but efficient sequestration to nuclear bodies suggests that its expression may be tightly regulated, or that the protein self-aggregates extremely efficiently [PMID: 10216252].
