Summary: MIF4G like
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.
MIF4G like Provide feedback
Members of this family are involved in mediating U snRNA export from the nucleus. They adopt a highly helical structure, wherein the polypeptide chain forms a right-handed solenoid. At the tertiary level, the domain is composed of a superhelical arrangement of successive antiparallel pairs of helices .

InterPro entry IPR015174
This entry represents an MIF4G-like domain. MIF4G domains share a common structure but can differ in sequence. This entry is designated "type 2", and is found in nuclear cap-binding proteins and eIF4G.
The MIF4G domain is a structural motif with an ARM (Armadillo) repeat-type fold, consisting of a 2-layer alpha/alpha right-handed superhelix. Proteins usually contain two or more structurally similar MIF4G domains connected by unstructured linkers. MIF4G domains are found in several proteins involved in RNA metabolism, including eIF4G (eukaryotic initiation factor 4-gamma), eIF-2b (translation initiation factor), UPF2 (regulator of nonsense transcripts 2), and nuclear cap-binding proteins (CBP80, CBC1, NCBP1), although the sequence identity between them may be low [PUBMED:10958635].
The nuclear cap-binding complex (CBC) is a heterodimer. Human CBC consists of a large CBP80 subunit and a small CBP20 subunit, the latter being critical for cap binding. CBP80 contains three MIF4G domains connected with long linkers, while CBP20 has an RNP (ribonucleoprotein)-type domain that associates with domains 2 and 3 of CBP80 [PUBMED:11545740]. The complex binds to 5'-cap of eukaryotic RNA polymerase II transcripts, such as mRNA and U snRNA. The binding is important for several mRNA nuclear maturation steps and for nonsense-mediated decay. It is also essential for nuclear export of U snRNAs in metazoans [PUBMED:16043498].
Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4 gamma (eIF4G) plays a critical role in protein expression, and is at the centre of a complex regulatory network. Together with the cap-binding protein eIF4E, it recruits the small ribosomal subunit to the 5'-end of mRNA and promotes the assembly of a functional translation initiation complex, which scans along the mRNA to the translation start codon. The activity of eIF4G in translation initiation could be regulated through intra- and inter-protein interactions involving the ARM repeats [PUBMED:16156639]. In eIF4G, the MIF4G domain binds eIF4A, eIF3, RNA and DNA.

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request

There are 4 interactions for this family. More...
We determine these interactions using iPfam, which considers the interactions between residues in three-dimensional protein structures and maps those interactions back to Pfam families. You can find more information about the iPfam algorithm in the journal article that accompanies the website.
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 MIF4G_like_2 domain has been found. There are 11 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 seqence.
