Homologous Superfamily

Chromosomal protein MC1 superfamily (IPR036620)

Short name: MC1_sf

Overlapping entries


This superfamily represents the chromosomal protein MC1, which protects DNA against thermal denaturation and shapes DNA by binding to it [PMID: 2503033, PMID: 25212183]. Its global fold consists of a pseudo barrel with an extension of the beta-sheet (beta4-beta5) forming an arm (LP5) [PMID: 24558431].
