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.
Oligosaccharyl transferase STT3 subunit Provide feedback
This family consists of the oligosaccharyl transferase STT3 subunit and related proteins. The STT3 subunit is part of the oligosaccharyl transferase (OTase) complex of proteins and is required for its activity . In eukaryotes, OTase transfers a lipid-linked core-oligosaccharide to selected asparagine residues in the ER . In the archaea STT3 occurs alone, rather than in an OTase complex, and is required for N-glycosylation of asparagines [3-4].

InterPro entry IPR003674
N-linked glycosylation is a ubiquitous protein modification, and is essential for viability in eukaryotic cells. A lipid-linked core-oligosaccharide is assembled at the membrane of the endoplasmic reticulum and transferred to selected asparagine residues of nascent polypeptide chains by the oligosaccharyl transferase (OTase) complex [PUBMED:7588624].
This family consists of the oligsacharyl transferase STT3 subunit and related proteins. The STT3 subunit is part of the oligosccharyl transferase (OTase) complex of proteins and is required for its activity [PUBMED:7588624].

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 STT3 domain has been found. There are 11 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.
