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: Flavoprotein (CL0042)


Flavoprotein Add an annotation

Members of this clan are FMN or FAD-binding redox proteins. Flavoproteins act in various electron-transport systems as functional analogues of ferredoxin. They are characterised by an open twisted alpha/beta structure consisting of five parallel beta-sheets connected by alpha-helices which surround the sheet.

This clan contains 7 families and the total number of domains in the clan is 68739. The clan was built by RD Finn.


This clan contains the following 7 member families:

Flavodoxin_1 Flavodoxin_2 Flavodoxin_3 Flavodoxin_4 Flavodoxin_5 Flavodoxin_NdrI FMN_red

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.
