Domain

FIST domain, N-terminal (IPR013702)

Short name: FIST_domain_N

Domain relationships

None.

Description

The FIST N domain is a novel sensory domain, which is present in signal transduction proteins from Bacteria, Archaea and Eukarya. Chromosomal proximity of FIST-encoding genes to those coding for proteins involved in amino acid metabolism and transport suggest that FIST domains bind small ligands, such as amino acids [PMID: 17855421].
