Domain

Dynein associated protein (IPR022157)

Short name: Dynactin

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found in eukaryotes, and is approximately 280 amino acids in length. The family is found in association with PF01302. There is a single completely conserved residue E that may be functionally important. Dynactin has been associated with Dynein, a kinesin protein which is involved in organelle transport, mitotic spindle assembly and chromosome segregation. Dynactin anchors Dynein to specific subcellular structures [PMID: 9235942].
