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: DUF1214 (CL0528)


DUF1214-like Add an annotation

Members of this clan usually appear in pairs on the same sequence. In cases where there is only a single example of the domain, there is often a second protein containing a single domain that is located sequentially along the chromosome. The crystal structure of pdb:2P3Y reveals that Pfam:PF06863 and Pfam:PF06742 come together to from a deep, positively charged pocket or cleft. Structural comparisons reveal that this may this pocket that may bind some form of carbohydrate. Conserved residues are predominantly found on the surface of the positively charged cleft [Jayaraman et al. personal communication].

This clan contains 2 families and the total number of domains in the clan is 6344. The clan was built by RD Finn.


This clan contains the following 2 member families:

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.
