Domain

Putative adherens-junction anchoring domain (IPR032402)

Short name: AbLIM_anchor

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

None.

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This is a domain lying between the LIM actin-binding and the vilin-head domains of actin-binding LIM proteins (abLIMs). It is likely that this domain is involved in anchoring abLIMs to circumferential actin bundles in specific cell types [PMID: 20709423]. It is also found in Dematin, an actin-binding protein originally identified in the junctional complex of the erythrocyte plasma membrane [PMID: 19241372].
