Homologous Superfamily

Impact, N-terminal domain superfamily (IPR036956)

Short name: Impact_N_sf

Overlapping entries


The Impact protein is a translational regulator that ensures constant high levels of translation under amino acid starvation. It acts by interacting with Gcn1/Gcn1L1, thereby preventing activation of Gcn2 protein kinases (EIF2AK1 to 4) and subsequent down-regulation of protein synthesis. It is evolutionary conserved from eukaryotes to archaea [PMID: 11116084].

This entry represents the N-terminal domain superfamily of the Impact proteins.
