Homologous Superfamily

Argininosuccinate synthetase mutimerisation domain, C-terminal tail (IPR024073)

Short name: AS_multimer_C_tail

Overlapping entries


The argininosuccinate synthetase (AS) monomer is composed of a nucleotide binding domain and a catalytic/multimerisation domain. The catalytic/multimerisation domain possesses a C-terminal tail, which is involved in protein dimerisation and tetramerisation [PMID: 11738042]. The tail contains two alpha helices. In a subset of bacterial species, it also contains a short terminal beta structure.

This superfamily represents the C-terminal tail containing the alpha helices and the beta structure.
