Family: Carbam_trans_N (PF02543)

Summary: Carbamoyltransferase N-terminus

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.

Carbamoyltransferase N-terminus Provide feedback

This domain is found in NodU from Rhizobium, CmcH from Nocardia lactamdurans and the bifunctional carbamoyltransferase TobZ from Streptoalloteichus tenebrarius. NodU a Rhizobium nodulation protein involved in the synthesis of nodulation factors has 6-O-carbamoyltransferase-like activity [1]. CmcH is involved in cephamycin (antibiotic) biosynthesis and has 3-hydroxymethylcephem carbamoyltransferase activity [2] EC:2.1.3.7 catalysing the reaction: Carbamoyl phosphate + 3-hydroxymethylceph-3-EM-4-carboxylate <=> phosphate + 3-carbamoyloxymethylcephem. TobZ functions as an ATP carbamoyltransferase and tobramycin carbamoyltransferase [3]. These proteins contain two domains, this is the larger, N-terminal, domain.

InterPro entry IPR003696

The putative O-carbamoyltransferases (O-Cases) encoded by the nodU genes of Rhizobium fredii and Bradyrhizobium japonicum are involved in the synthesis of nodulation factors [PUBMED:7559434]. The cmcH genes of Nocardia lactamdurans and Streptomyces clavuligerus encode a functional 3'-hydroxymethylcephem O-carbamoyltransferase EC for cephamycin biosynthesis that shows significant similarity to the O-carbamoyltransferases [PUBMED:7557411].

Pfam Clan

This family is a member of clan Actin_ATPase (CL0108), which has the following description:

The actin-like ATPase domain forms an alpha/beta canonical fold. The domain can be subdivided into 1A, 1B, 2A and 2B subdomains. Subdomains 1A and 1B share the same RNAseH-like fold (a five-stranded beta-sheet decorated by a number of alpha-helices). Domains 1A and 2A are conserved in all members of this superfamily, whereas domain 1B and 2B have a variable structure and are even missing from some homologues [1]. Within the actin-like ATPase domain the ATP-binding site is highly conserved. The phosphate part of the ATP is bound in a cleft between subdomains 1A and 2A, whereas the adenosine moiety is bound to residues from domains 2A and 2B[1].

The clan contains the following 31 members:

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 using the family HMM. We also generate alignments using four representative proteomes (RP) sets, the NCBI sequence database, and our metagenomics 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.

MyHits provides a collection of tools to handle multiple sequence alignments. For example, one can refine a seed alignment (sequence addition or removal, re-alignment or manual edition) and then search databases for remote homologs using HMMER3.

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.

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 Carbam_trans_N domain has been found. There are 10 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.
