Homologous Superfamily

Variant surface glycoprotein C-terminal domain superfamily (IPR027446)

Short name: VSG_C_dom_sf

Overlapping entries

None.

Description

This superfamily represents the C-terminal domain of variant surface glycoproteins. This domain consists of a short alpha-helix followed by a single turn of 3(10)-helix and connected by a short loop to a small anti-parallel beta-sheet and then a longer alpha-helix at the C terminus [PMID: 15557330]. The function of the domain is not clear.
