Summary: Soluble liver antigen/liver pancreas antigen (SLA/LP autoantigen)
Soluble liver antigen/liver pancreas antigen (SLA/LP autoantigen) Provide feedback
This family consists of several eukaryotic and archaeal proteins which are related to the human soluble liver antigen/liver pancreas antigen (SLA/LP autoantigen). Autoantibodies are a hallmark of autoimmune hepatitis, but most are not disease specific. Autoantibodies to soluble liver antigen (SLA) and to liver and pancreas antigen (LP) have been described as disease specific, occurring in about 30% of all patients with autoimmune hepatitis . The function of SLA/LP is unknown, however, it has been suggested that the protein may function as a serine hydroxymethyltransferase and may be an important enzyme in the thus far poorly understood selenocysteine pathway . The archaeal sequences Q8TXK0 and Q8TYR3 are annotated as being pyridoxal phosphate-dependent enzymes.

InterPro entry IPR008829This family consists of several eukaryotic and archaeal proteins which are related to the Homo sapiens soluble liver antigen/liver pancreas antigen (SLA/LP autoantigen). Autoantibodies are a hallmark of autoimmune hepatitis, but most are not disease specific. Autoantibodies to soluble liver antigen (SLA) and to liver and pancreas antigen (LP) have been described as disease specific, occurring in about 30% of all patients with autoimmune hepatitis [PUBMED:10801173]. The function of SLA/LP is unknown, however, it has been suggested that the protein may function as a serine hydroxymethyltransferase and may be an important enzyme in the thus far poorly understood selenocysteine pathway [PUBMED:11481605]. The archaeal sequences SWISSPROT and SWISSPROT are annotated as being pyridoxal phosphate-dependent enzymes.

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

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 SLA_LP_auto_ag domain has been found. There are 15 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.
