Summary: Prokaryotic RING finger family 1
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.
Prokaryotic RING finger family 1 Provide feedback
RING finger family found sporadically in bacteria and archaea, and associated in gene neighborhoods with other components of the ubiquitin-based signaling and degradation system, including ubiquitin, the E1 and E2 proteins and the JAB-like metallopeptidase. The bacterial versions contain transmembrane helices .

This clan includes the Ring zinc finger domains as well as the U-box domain that appears to have lost the zinc coordinating cysteine residues .
The clan contains the following 24 members:Baculo_RING FANCL_C Prok-RING_1 Prok-RING_2 Prok-RING_4 RINGv Rtf2 U-box zf-Apc11 zf-C3HC4 zf-C3HC4_2 zf-C3HC4_3 zf-C3HC4_4 zf-MIZ zf-Nse zf-rbx1 zf-RING-like zf-RING_2 zf-RING_4 zf-RING_5 zf-RING_6 zf-RING_UBOX zf-UBP zf-UDP
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
