Clan: HAMP (CL0681)

Summary

HAMP domains Add an annotation

The ability of single-celled organisms to sense, respond to, and adapt to their changing environment requires receptor proteins to convert extracellular signals into cellular responses. Central to many of these signal transduction systems are HAMP (histidine kinases, adenylyl cyclases, methylaccepting proteins, and other prokaryotic signaling proteins) domains, which act to couple sensory and output domains in different receptor proteins. In transmembrane receptors, HAMP domains connect to transmembrane helices entering the cytoplasm and translate chemical, photo, and thermo stimuli to the output of cytoplasmic catalytic domains (mainly histidine kinases, adenylyl cyclases, methyl-accepting chemotaxis proteins [MCPs], and phosphatases). Deletion of HAMP domains disrupts the link between input and output units, generating receptors incapable of switching activity states upon stimulation. HAMP domains are small modules, approximately 50 amino acids, that dimerize to form an entirely parallel four-helix bundle with two helices (AS1 and AS2) supplied from each subunit. The AS1 and AS2 helices form a seven-residue pattern characteristic of coiled coils, termed a heptad repeat [1].

This clan contains 2 families and the total number of domains in the clan is 97500. The clan was built by S El-Gebali.

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.
