Domain

Anillin homology domain (IPR012966)

Short name: AHD

Domain relationships

None.

Description

Anillin is a protein involved in septin organisation during cell division. It is an actin binding protein that is localised to the cleavage furrow, and it maintains the localisation of active myosin, which ensures the spatial control of concerted contraction during cytokinesis [PMID: 16040610].

This entry represents a conserved domain found in anillin and anillin-like proteins. This domain shares homology with the RhoA binding protein Rhotekin [PMID: 18158243].
