Family: AMP-binding (PF00501)

Summary: AMP-binding enzyme

Pfam includes annotations and additional family information from a range of different sources. These sources can be accessed via the tabs below.

The Pfam group coordinates the annotation of Pfam families in Wikipedia, but we have not yet assigned a Wikipedia article to this family. If you think that a particular Wikipedia article provides good annotation, please let us know.

This tab holds the annotation information that is stored in the Pfam database. As we move to using Wikipedia as our main source of annotation, the contents of this tab will be gradually replaced by the Wikipedia tab.

InterPro entry IPR000873

A number of prokaryotic and eukaryotic enzymes, which appear to act via an ATP-dependent covalent binding of AMP to their substrate, share a region of sequence similarity [ PUBMED:2118102 , PUBMED:2911486 , PUBMED:2254270 ]. This region is a Ser/Thr/Gly-rich domain that is further characterised by a conserved Pro-Lys-Gly triplet. The family of enzymes includes luciferase, long chain fatty acid Co-A ligase, acetyl-CoA synthetase and various other closely-related synthetases [ PUBMED:8805533 , PUBMED:26473393 ].

Pfam Clan

This family is a member of clan ANL (CL0378), which has the following description:

This superfamily consists of enzymes including luciferase, long chain fatty acid Co-A ligase, acetyl-CoA synthetase and various other closely-related synthetases as well as a plant auxin-responsive promoter family. The name ANL derives from from three of the subfamilies - Acyl-CoA synthetases, the NRPS adenylation domains, and the Luciferase enzymes [1]. Members of this superfamily catalyse the initial adenylation of a carboxylate to form an acyl-AMP intermediate, followed by a second partial reaction, most commonly the formation of a thioester [1].

The clan contains the following 4 members:

ACAS_N AMP-binding GH3 LuxE

Alignments

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...

Trees

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.

Curation and family details

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 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 AMP-binding domain has been found. There are 513 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.
