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...

DNA glycosylase/AP lyase, zinc finger domain, DNA-binding site (IPR015887) Zinc finger (Znf) domains are relatively small protein motifs which contain multiple finger-like protrusions that make tandem contacts with their target molecule. Some of these do...

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...

Leghaemoglobin, iron-binding site (IPR019824) Globins are haem-containing proteins involved in binding and/or transporting oxygen. They belong to a very large and well studied family that is widely distributed in many organis...

Legume lectin, beta chain, Mn/Ca-binding site (IPR019825) Lectins are carbohydrate-binding proteins. Leguminous lectins form one of the largest lectin families and resemble each other in their physicochemical properties, though they diff...

Transketolase binding site (IPR020826) Transketolase (TK) catalyzes the reversible transfer of a two-carbon ketol unit from xylulose 5-phosphate to an aldose receptor, such as ribose 5-phosphate, to form sedoheptulose...

Peroxidases heam-ligand binding site (IPR019793) Peroxidases are haem-containing enzymes that use hydrogen peroxide as the electron acceptor to catalyse a number of oxidative reactions. Most haem peroxidases follow the reaction ...

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...

DNA polymerase family X, binding site (IPR019843) DNA carries the biological information that instructs cells how to exist in an ordered fashion: accurate replication is thus one of the most important events in the cell life cycl...

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 ...
