Clan: Phage_fibre (CL0606)


Phage fibre superfamily Add an annotation

According to SCOP this superfamily includes phage tail fibre proteins that form homotrimers with each chain donating 3 beta-strands per turn of the helix

This clan contains 5 families and the total number of domains in the clan is 434. The clan was built by A Bateman.


This clan contains the following 5 member families:

BppL_N End_tail_spike gp12-short_mid Gp5_C Hyaluronidase_1

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.
