Summary: Structural protein 2
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.
Structural protein 2 Provide feedback
This family represents structural protein 2 of the hepatitis E virus. The high basic amino acid content of this protein has lead to the suggestion of a role in viral genomic RNA encapsidation.

The clan contains a set of viral coat protein families and peptidase A6. The only known peptidase activity is an autolytic cleavage releasing a 44-residue C-terminal fragment. The reaction is very slow and only occurs within the assembled virion. There is debate whether this is actually a true peptidase. The virion with these coat or capsid proteins are icosahedral viruses containing sixty triangular coat protein units, each unit consisting of three proteins. The coat protein consists of two subdomains, an eight-stranded beta-barrel on the surface and a three-helix bundle on the inner face.
The clan contains the following 17 members:Birna_VP2 Bromo_coat Calici_coat Capsid-VNN Circo_capsid Como_LCP CRPV_capsid Cucumo_coat Luteo_coat Nepo_coat Peptidase_A21 Peptidase_A6 Rhv SP2 TT_ORF1 Tymo_coat Viral_coat
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 SP2 domain has been found. There are 8 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.
