Homologous Superfamily

Delta antigen, N-terminal (IPR027403)

Short name: Delta_antigen_N

Overlapping entries


This superfamily represents the N-terminal coiled coil domain of the delta antigen from the hepatitis D virus (HDV). The hepatitis delta antigen dimerises through this anti-parallel coiled coil domain. Dimers then associate further to form octamers through residues in the coiled-coil domain and residues C-terminal to this domain. This domain may play a role in binding the viral RNA [PMID: 9687364].
