Powering down the Pfam website
On October 5th, we will start redirecting the traffic from Pfam (pfam.xfam.org) to InterPro (www.ebi.ac.uk/interpro). The Pfam website will be available at legacy.pfam.xfam.org until January 2023, when it will be decommissioned. You can read more about the sunset period in our blog post.

Family: DUF1214 (PF06742)

Summary: Protein of unknown function (DUF1214)

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

This is the Wikipedia entry entitled "Domain of unknown function". More...

Domain of unknown function Edit Wikipedia article

A Domain of unknown function (DUF) is a protein domain that has no characterised function. These families have been collected together in the Pfam database using the prefix DUF followed by a number, with examples being DUF188 and DUF1000. There are now over 3,000 DUF families within the Pfam database representing over 20% of known families.

History

The DUF naming scheme was introduced by Chris Ponting, through the addition of DUF1 and DUF2 to the SMART database.[1] These two domains were found to be widely distributed in bacterial signaling proteins. Subsequently, the functions of these domains were identified and they have since been renamed as the GGDEF domain and EAL domain respectively.

Structure

Structural genomics programmes have attempted to understand the function of DUFs through structure determination. The structures of over 250 DUF families have been solved.[2]

This family represents the C-terminal region of several hypothetical proteins of unknown function. Family members are mostly bacterial, but a few are also found in eukaryotes and archaea.

This tab holds annotation information from the InterPro database.

InterPro entry IPR010621

This entry represents the domain of unknown function that is found in the C-terminal region of a number of uncharacterised bacterial proteins, as well as in other proteins.

Pfam Clan

This family is a member of clan DUF1214 (CL0528), which has the following description:

Members of this clan usually appear in pairs on the same sequence. In cases where there is only a single example of the domain, there is often a second protein containing a single domain that is located sequentially along the chromosome. The crystal structure of pdb:2P3Y reveals that Pfam:PF06863 and Pfam:PF06742 come together to from a deep, positively charged pocket or cleft. Structural comparisons reveal that this may this pocket that may bind some form of carbohydrate. Conserved residues are predominantly found on the surface of the positively charged cleft [Jayaraman et al. personal communication].

The clan contains the following 2 members:

DUF1214 DUF1254

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 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 DUF1214 domain has been found. There are 13 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.
