Summary: Rapsyn N-terminal myristoylation and linker region
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.
Rapsyn N-terminal myristoylation and linker region Provide feedback
Neuromuscular junction formation relies upon the clustering of acetylcholine receptors and other proteins in the muscle membrane. Rapsyn is a peripheral membrane protein that is selectively concentrated at the neuromuscular junction and is essential for the formation of synaptic acetylcholine receptor aggregates. Acetylcholine receptors fail to aggregate beneath nerve terminals in mice where rapsyn has been knocked out. The N-terminal six amino acids of rapsyn are its myristoylation site, and myristoylation is necessary for the targeting of the protein to the membrane .

Neuromuscular junction formation relies upon the clustering of acetylcholine receptors and other proteins in the muscle membrane. Rapsyn (receptor-associated protein of the synapse) is a peripheral membrane protein that is selectively concentrated at the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) and is essential for the formation of synaptic acetylcholine receptor aggregates. It is required for anchoring and stabilising the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (AChR) in the postsynaptic membrane of the NMJ [PUBMED:19344765]. Acetylcholine receptors fail to aggregate beneath nerve terminals in mice where rapsyn has been knocked out. The N-terminal six amino acids of rapsyn are its myristoylation site, and myristoylation is necessary for the targeting of the protein to the membrane [PUBMED:15730871].

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 UniProtKB sequence database using the family HMM
- 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:
