Summary: Sine oculis-binding 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.
Sine oculis-binding protein Provide feedback
SOBP is associated with syndromic and nonsyndromic intellectual disability. It carries a zinc-finger of the zf-C2H2 type at the N-terminus, and a highly characteristic C-terminal PhPhPhPhPhPh motif. The deduced 873-amino acid protein contains an N-terminal nuclear localisation signal (NLS), followed by 2 FCS-type zinc finger motifs, a proline-rich region (PR1), a putative RNA-binding motif region, and a C-terminal NLS embedded in a second proline-rich motif. SOBP is expressed in various human tissues, including developing mouse brain at embryonic day 14. In postnatal and adult mouse brain SOBP is expressed in all neurons, with intense staining in the limbic system. Highest expression is in layer V cortical neurons, hippocampus, pyriform cortex, dorsomedial nucleus of thalamus, amygdala, and hypothalamus. Postnatal expression of SOBP in the limbic system corresponds to a time of active synaptogenesis . the family is also referred to as Jackson circler, JXC1. In seven affected siblings from a consanguineous Israeli Arab family with mental retardation, anterior maxillary protrusion, and strabismus mutations were found in this protein [1,2].

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
