Homologous Superfamily

Translin, N-terminal (IPR016068)

Short name: Translin_N

Overlapping entries


Translins are DNA-binding proteins that specifically recognise consensus sequences at the breakpoint junctions in chromosomal translocations, mostly involving immunoglobulin (Ig)/T-cell receptor gene segments. They seem to recognise single-sranded DNA ends generated by staggered breaks occuring at recombination hot spots [PMID: 9013868].

Translin folds into an alpha-alpha superhelix, consisting of two curved layers of alpha/alpha topology [PMID: 12079346, PMID: 15039555]. This structure can be divided into two alpha-bundle subdomains. This entry represents the N-terminal alpha bundle subdomain.
