InterPro entry IPR025287
Wall-associated kinases (WAKs) are transmembrane proteins containing a cytoplasmic Serine/Threonine kinase domain and an extracellular domain in contact with the pectin fraction of the plant cell wall [PUBMED:10380805]. The cysteine-rich galacturonan-binding domain is located near the N-terminal end of the extracellular domain and binds to the cell-wall pectins [PUBMED:15769808, PUBMED:16631829].

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
