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.

Nudix hydrolase Edit Wikipedia article

The Nudix family is a protein family of phosphohydrolases. Using water-mediated catalysis they break a phosphate bond in their substrate to create two products. Nudix stands for Nucleotide Diphosphate linked to X. There are two components to the Nudix family, the so-called Nudix fold of a beta sheet with alpha helices on each side and the Nudix motif which contains catalytic and metal-binding amino acids. The Nudix motif is GXXXXXEXXXXXXXREUXEEXGU where U is Isoleucine, Leucine, or Valine and X is any amino acid. This forms a short helix which (usually) contains the catalytic amino acids. Nudix family enzymes include Dcp2 of the decapping complex, ADP-ribose diphosphatase, MutT, ADPRase, Ap4A, RppH, and many others.[1]

NADH pyrophosphatase-like rudimentary NUDIX domain Provide feedback

The N-terminal domain in NADH pyrophosphatase, which has a rudiment Nudix fold according to SCOP.

External database links

This tab holds annotation information from the InterPro database.

InterPro entry IPR015375

This entry represents the N-terminal domain found in NADH pyrophosphatase, which has a rudiment Nudix fold according to SCOP. This domain is also found in Nudix hydrolases, such as NudC, which has been shown to act as a NAD decapping enzyme [ PUBMED:27428510 ].

We store a range of different sequence alignments for families. As well as the seed alignment from which the family is built, we provide the full alignment, generated by searching the sequence database (reference proteomes) using the family HMM. We also generate alignments using four representative proteomes (RP) sets and the UniProtKB sequence database. More...

View options

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family. You can see a description of each above. You can view these alignments in various ways but please note that some types of alignment are never generated while others may not be available for all families, most commonly because the alignments are too large to handle.

HMM logo

HMM logos is one way of visualising profile HMMs. Logos provide a quick overview of the properties of an HMM in a graphical form. You can see a more detailed description of HMM logos and find out how you can interpret them here. More...


This page displays the phylogenetic tree for this family's seed alignment. We use FastTree to calculate neighbour join trees with a local bootstrap based on 100 resamples (shown next to the tree nodes). FastTree calculates approximately-maximum-likelihood phylogenetic trees from our seed alignment.

Note: You can also download the data file for the tree.

For those sequences which have a structure in the Protein DataBank, we use the mapping between UniProt, PDB and Pfam coordinate systems from the PDBe group, to allow us to map Pfam domains onto UniProt sequences and three-dimensional protein structures. The table below shows the structures on which the NUDIX-like domain has been found. There are 5 instances of this domain found in the PDB. Note that there may be multiple copies of the domain in a single PDB structure, since many structures contain multiple copies of the same protein sequence.
