Ku, C-terminal (IPR014893)

Short name: Ku_PK_bind

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



The non-homologous end joining (NHEJ) pathway is one method by which double stranded breaks in chromosomal DNA are repaired. Ku is a component of a multi-protein complex that is involved in the NHEJ. Ku has affinity for DNA ends and recruits the DNA-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit (DNA-PKcs). This domain is found at the C-terminal of Ku which binds to DNA-PKcs [PMID: 14672664].
