Domain

Protection of telomeres protein 1, ssDNA-binding domain (IPR032042)

Short name: POT1PC

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This entry represents the ssDNA-binding domain found in telomere protection protein 1 (Pot1). This domain is able to accommodate heterogeneous ssDNA ligands. Pot1 is responsible for binding to and protecting the 3' single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) overhang at most eukaryotic telomeres [PMID: 23201273].
