Domain

Histone deacetylase, glutamine rich N-terminal domain (IPR024643)

Short name: Hist_deacetylase_Gln_rich_N

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found in eukaryotic histone deacetylases, and is approximately 90 amino acids in length. The domain forms an alpha helix, which complexes to form a tetramer. The glutamine rich domains have many intra- and inter-helical interactions that are thought to be involved in reversible assembly and disassembly of proteins [PMID: 17360518].
