Summary: Xin repeat
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.
Xin repeat Provide feedback
The repeat has the consensus sequence GDV(K/Q/R)(T/S/G)X(R/K/T) WLFETXPLD. This repeat motif is typically found in the N-terminus of the proteins, with a copy number between 2 and 28 repeats. Direct evidence for binding to and stabilising F-actin has been found  in the human protein Q702N9. The homologues in mouse and chicken localise in the adherens junction complex of the intercalated disc in cardiac muscle and in the myotendon junction of skeletal muscle. mXin may co-localise with Vinculin which is known to attach the actin to the cytoplasmic membrane . It has been shown that the amino-terminus of human xin (CMYA1) binds the EVH1 domain of Mena/VASP/EVL, and the carboxy-terminus binds the, for the filamin family unique, domain 20 of filaminC . This confirms the proposed role of xin repeat containing proteins as F-actin-binding adapter proteins.

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
