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: PapD-like (CL0556)


PapD-like superfamily,immunoglobulin-like beta sandwich Add an annotation

This superfamily is characterised by proteins in families involved in ciliary or flagellar function. The families may be acting as chaperones.

This clan contains 8 families and the total number of domains in the clan is 19123. The clan was built by P Coggill.


This clan contains the following 8 member families:

ASH DUF1573 EcpB_C Motile_Sperm PapD-like PapD_N Peptidase_M60_C TMEM131_like_N

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.
