Domain

Dynein associated protein (IPR022157)

Short name: Dynactin

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].
