Copper homeostasis CutC domain (IPR023648)

Short name: Cu_homeostasis_CutC_dom

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



CutC is a protein involved in copper homeostasis [PMID: 7635807]. Copper transport in Escherichia coli is mediated by the products of at least six genes, cutA, cutB, cutC, cutD, cutE, and cutF. A mutation in one or more of these genes results in an increased copper sensitivity.

The CutC monomer structure adopts a common TIM beta/alpha barrel with 8 beta strands surrounded by 8 alpha helices [PMID: 15624211].
