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: Nribosyltransf (CL0498)


N-(deoxy)ribosyltransferase-like superfamily Add an annotation

This superfamily includes the N-deoxyribosyltransferase and ADP-ribosyl cyclase-like families as well as the family that includes the hypothetical protein PA1492 for which the structure is known. PA1942 has a very similar putative active site and is predicted by SCOP to have a deoxyribosyltransferase activity [1].

This clan contains 7 families and the total number of domains in the clan is 6260. 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.
