Summary: T4 RNase H, C terminal
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.
T4 RNase H, C terminal Provide feedback
Members of this family are found in T4 RNaseH ribonuclease, and adopt a SAM domain-like fold, consisting of a bundle of four/five helices. These residues may have a role in providing a docking site for other proteins or enzymes in the replication fork .

InterPro entry IPR020045
This entry represents the C-terminal domain of 5' to 3' exonucleases. The 5'-3' exonucleases are conserved in organisms as diverse as bacteriophage and mammals. It adopts a SAM fold consisting of 4-5 helices packed into a bundle of two orthogonally packed alpha-hairpins. This domain is involved in interactions with DNA and proteins. 5' to 3' exonucleases that contain this domain include:
- Bacteriophage T4 RNase H, which has sequence similarity to the RAD2 family of eukaryotic proteins [PUBMED:8674116].
- 5' to 3' exonuclease domain of DNA polymerase Taq, which is homologous to Escherichia coli DNA polymerase I (pol I) [PUBMED:7637814, PUBMED:10666572].
- Bacteriophage T5 5'-exonuclease, which are structure-specific endonucleases [PUBMED:9874768].
- Flap endonuclease-1 (Fen-1 nuclease), a structure specific nuclease that is an essential enzyme for eukaryotic DNA replication and repair [PUBMED:9699635].

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

There is 1 interaction for this family. More...
We determine these interactions using iPfam, which considers the interactions between residues in three-dimensional protein structures and maps those interactions back to Pfam families. You can find more information about the iPfam algorithm in the journal article that accompanies the website.
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 RNaseH_C domain has been found. There are 6 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.
