Domain

DM13 domain (IPR019545)

Short name: DM13_domain

Domain relationships

None.

Description

The DM13 domain has been identified in animal proteins containing a DOMON domain likely to function as cytochromes involved in as yet unidentified redox reactions potentially related to protein hydroxylation or oxidative cross-linking. However, it is also found in bacteria. The DM13 domain contains a nearly absolutely conserved cysteine, which can be potentially involved in a redox reaction either as a nacked thiol group or by binding a prosthetic group like heme [PMID: 17878204].

The DM13 domain is predicted to have a beta-strand-rich fold [PMID: 17878204].
