Endosialidase, N-terminal extension domain superfamily (IPR037142)

Short name: Endosialidase_N-extension_sf

Overlapping entries


This entry represents the N-terminal extension domain superfamily of endosialidases which is approximately 70 amino acids in length. The two N-terminal domains (this domain and the beta propeller) assemble in the compact 'cap' whereas the C-terminal domain forms an extended tail-like structure. The very N-terminal part of the 'cap' region (residues 246 to 312) holds the only alpha-helix of the protein and is presumably the residual part of the deleted N-terminal head-binding domain [PMID: 15608653].
