Clan: EGF (CL0001)

Summary

EGF superfamily Add an annotation

Members of this clan all belong to the EGF superfamily. This particular superfamily is characterised as having least 6 cysteines residues. These cysteine form disulphide bonds, in the order 1-3, 2-4, 5-6, which are essential for the stability of the EGF fold. These disulphide bonds are stacked in a ladder-like arrangement. The Laminin EGF family is distinguished by having an an additional disulphide bond. The function of the domains within this family remains unclear, but they are though to largely perform a structural role. More often than not, there domains are arranged a tandem repeats in extracellular proteins.

This clan contains 14 families and the total number of domains in the clan is 125026. The clan was built by RD Finn and A Bateman.

Structures

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.
