Short name: B-adaptin_app_sub_C

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships



This entry represents a subdomain of the appendage (ear) domain of beta-adaptin. This domain has a three-layer arrangement, alpha-beta-alpha, with a bifurcated antiparallel beta-sheet [PMID: 10430869]. This domain is required for binding to clathrin, and its subsequent polymerisation. Furthermore, a hydrophobic patch present in the domain also binds to a subset of D-phi-F/W motif-containing proteins that are bound by the alpha-adaptin appendage domain (epsin, AP180, eps15) [PMID: 10944104].
