Summary: 2OG-Fe(II) oxygenase superfamily
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.

Enzymes with the Fe(2+) and 2-oxoglutarate (2OG)-dependent dioxygenase domain typically catalyse the oxidation of an organic substrate using a dioxygen molecule, mostly by using ferrous iron as the active site cofactor and 2OG as a co-substrate which is decarboxylated to succinate and CO2 [PUBMED:11276424]. Iron 2OG dioxygenase domain proteins are widespread among eukaryotes and bacteria. In metazoans, prolyl hydroxylases containing the domain act as oxygen sensors and catalyse the hydroxylation of conserved prolyl residues in hypoxia-inducible transcription factor (HIF) alpha [PUBMED:16782814, PUBMED:19756382]. In plants, Fe(II) 2OG dioxygenase domain enzymes catalyse the formation of plant hormones, such as ethylene, gibberellins, anthocyanidins and pigments such as flavones. In bacteria and fungi Fe(II) 2OG dioxygenase domain enzymes participate in the biosynthesis of antibiotics such as penicillin and cephalosporin. The eukaryotic and bacterial protein AlkB that also shows this structural domain is involved in DNA-repair [PUBMED:11276424, PUBMED:19786499].
The iron 2OG dioxygenase domain has a conserved beta-barrel structure [PUBMED:16782814], which forms a double-stranded beta-helix core fold that forms the predominant class of the cupin superfamily ('cupa' means a small barrel in Latin) [PUBMED:14697267]. Two histidines and an aspartate residue catalytically bind a metal ion, in general iron but in some cases another metal, directly involved in catalysis. A conserved arginine or lysine residue further near the C-terminal part acts as the basic residue that interacts with the acidic substrate.

This clan represents the conserved barrel domain of the 'cupin' superfamily  ('cupa' is the Latin term for a small barrel). The cupin fold is found in a wide variety of enzymes, but notably contains the non-enzymatic seed storage proteins also.
The clan contains the following 53 members:2OG-Fe_Oxy_2 2OG-FeII_Oxy 2OG-FeII_Oxy_2 2OG-FeII_Oxy_3 2OG-FeII_Oxy_4 2OG-FeII_Oxy_5 3-HAO AraC_binding AraC_binding_2 AraC_N ARD Asp_Arg_Hydrox Auxin_BP CDO_I CENP-C_C CsiD Cupin_1 Cupin_2 Cupin_3 Cupin_4 Cupin_5 Cupin_6 Cupin_7 Cupin_8 dTDP_sugar_isom DUF1255 DUF1479 DUF1498 DUF1637 DUF1971 DUF386 DUF4437 Ectoine_synth EutQ FdtA FTO_NTD GPI HgmA HutD JmjC KduI MannoseP_isomer Ofd1_CTDD Oxygenase-NA PhyH Pirin Pirin_C PMI_typeI Pox_C4_C10 TauD Tet_JBP VIT VIT_2
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

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 2OG-FeII_Oxy_3 domain has been found. There are 20 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.
