Summary: Herpesvirus UL56 protein
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.
Herpesvirus UL56 protein Provide feedback
In herpes simplex virus type 2, UL56 is thought to be a tail-anchored type II membrane protein involved in vesicular trafficking. The C terminal hydrophobic region is required for association with the cytoplasmic membrane, and the N terminal proline-rich region is important for the translocation of UL56 to the Golgi apparatus and cytoplasmic vesicles .

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
