Metallothionein, vertebrate, metal binding site (IPR018064) Metallothioneins (MT) are small proteins that bind heavy metals, such as zinc, copper, cadmium, nickel, etc. They have a high content of cysteine residues that bind the metal ions...

Phytochrome chromophore binding site (IPR013516) Phytochrome is a plant protein that acts as a regulatory photoreceptor and which mediates red-light effects on a wide variety of physiological and molecular responses. Phytochrome...

Protein kinase, ATP binding site (IPR017441) Protein phosphorylation, which plays a key role in most cellular activities, is a reversible process mediated by protein kinases and phosphoprotein phosphatases. Protein kinases c...

Peptidase M24A, methionine aminopeptidase, subfamily 2, binding site (IPR018349) Over 70 metallopeptidase families have been identified to date. In these enzymes a divalent cation which is usually zinc, but may be cobalt, manganese or copper, activates the wat...

Crossover junction endodeoxyribonuclease RuvC, magnesium-binding site (IPR020563) The Escherichia coli RuvC gene is involved in DNA repair and in the late step of RecE and RecF pathway recombination. RuvC protein cleaves cruciform junctions, which are formed by...

Lipoxygenase, iron binding site (IPR020833) Lipoxygenases are a class of iron-containing dioxygenases which catalyses the hydroperoxidation of lipids, containing a cis,cis-1,4-pentadiene structure. They are common in plants...

Adenylosuccinate synthase, GTP-binding site (IPR018220) Adenylosuccinate synthetase plays an important role in purine biosynthesis, by catalysing the GTP-dependent conversion of IMP and aspartic acid to AMP. Adenylosuccinate synthetase...

Adrenodoxin, iron-sulphur binding site (IPR018298) Adrenodoxin, putidaredoxin and terpredoxin are soluble 2Fe-2S iron-sulphur proteins that act as single electron carriers. They are a subgroup of the ferredoxin family of iron-sulp...

Transthyretin, thyroxine binding site (IPR023418) Transthyretin (prealbumin) is a thyroid hormone-binding protein that seems to transport thyroxine (T4) from the bloodstream to the brain. It is a protein of about 130 amino acids ...

Oxidoreductase, molybdopterin binding site (IPR022407) A number of different eukaryotic oxidoreductases that require and bind a molybdopterin cofactor have been shown to share a few regions of sequence similarity. These enzymes includ...
