Powering down the Pfam website
On October 5th, we began redirecting traffic from Pfam (pfam.xfam.org) to InterPro (www.ebi.ac.uk/interpro). The Pfam website will remain available at pfam-legacy.xfam.org until January 2023, when it will be decommissioned. You can read more about the sunset period in our blog post.

Clan: Rotavirus_VP7 (CL0217)


Rotavirus VP7 protein Add an annotation

This clan consists of several Rotavirus major outer capsid protein VP7 sequences. The rotavirus capsid is composed of three concentric protein layers. Proteins VP4 and VP7 comprise the outer layer. VP4 forms spikes and is the viral attachment protein. VP7 is a glycoprotein and the major constituent of the outer protein layer [1].

This clan contains 2 families and the total number of domains in the clan is 30. The clan was built by A Bateman.

For those sequences which have a structure in the Protein DataBank, we use the mapping between UniProt, PDB and Pfam coordinate systems from the MSD group, to allow us to map Pfam domains onto UniProt three-dimensional structures. The table below shows the mapping between the Pfam families in this clan, the corresponding UniProt entries, and the region of the three-dimensional structures that are available for that sequence.
