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: EFTPs (CL0575)


Translation proteins of Elongation Factors superfamily Add an annotation

This superfamily is characterised ba a barrel that is formed as a greek-key. It is found as the second domain in many elongation factor proteins, as well as in an elaborated from in two ribosomal proteins and in some other N-terminal domains, eg of AlaX and Gar1 and RimM protein famlies.

This clan contains 7 families and the total number of domains in the clan is 91840. The clan was built by P Coggill.


This clan contains the following 7 member families:

Gar1 GTP_EFTU_D2 NSP2_assoc RIBIOP_C Ribosomal_L3 Ribosomal_L35Ae RimM

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.
