Domain of unknown function DUF3855 (IPR024482)

Short name: DUF3855

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



This domain forms an unusual alpha/beta fold where a six-stranded antiparallel beta-sheet is wrapped around a central alpha-helix, flanked by an additional alpha-helix and a small sub-domain consisting of a single beta-strand and a two-stranded antiparallel beta-sheet [PMID: 15229892]. It shows weak structural similarities to phosphoribosylformylglycinamidine synthases and some thioesterase superfamily members, but its function is unknown.
