Short name: DCP2_BoxA_sf

Overlapping entries


This entry represents a domain superfamily which is always found to the N-terminal side of the NUDIX hydrolase domain IPR000086. This domain appears to be specific to mRNA decapping protein 2 (DCP2) P53550 and its close homologues. This region has been termed Box A [PMID: 12218187].

The Box A domain contains a four helices fold and an orthogonal array of two alpha hairpins topology.
