Family

DNA methylase, N-6 adenine-specific, eukaryotic (IPR019369)

Short name: N6_adenine_Mtase-rel_euk

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family of proteins, which are of approximately 200 residues in length, contain a highly conserved Glu-Phe-Trp (QFW) motif close to the N terminus and an Asp/Asn-Pro-Pro-Tyr/Phe motif in the centre. This latter motif is characteristic of N-6 adenine-specific DNA methylases and could be involved in substrate binding or in the catalytic activity (PMID: 7607512, PMID: 16479578).
