DEK, C-terminal (IPR014876)

Short name: DEK_C

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Domain relationships



DEK is a chromatin associated protein that is linked with cancers and autoimmune disease. This domain is found at the C-terminal of DEK and is of clinical importance since it can reverse the characteristic abnormal DNA-mutagen sensitivity in fibroblasts from ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) patients [PMID: 7504406]. The structure of this domain shows it to be homologous to the E2F/DP transcription factor family [PMID: 15238633]. This domain is also found in chitin synthase proteins like Q8TF96, and in protein phosphatases such as Q6NN85.
