Summary: M protein trans-acting positive regulator (MGA) PRD domain
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.

The PRD domain (for PTS Regulation Domain), is the phosphorylatable regulatory domain found in bacterial transcriptional antiterminator of the BglG family as well as in activators such as MtlR and LevR. The PRD domain is phosphorylated on a conserved histidine residue. PRD-containing proteins are involved in the regulation of catabolic operons in Gram+ and Gram- bacteria and are often characterised by a short N-terminal effector domain that binds to either RNA (CAT-RBD for antiterminators (Pfam:PF03123, see also comments for this family)) or DNA (for activators), and a duplicated PRD module which is phosphorylated on conserved histidines by the sugar phosphotransferase system (PTS) in response to the availability of carbon source. The phosphorylations are thought to modify the stability of the dimeric proteins and thereby the RNA- or DNA-binding activity of the effector domain.

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
