Summary: Male sterility protein
Male sterility protein Provide feedback
This family represents the C-terminal region of the male sterility protein in a number of arabidopsis and drosophila. A sequence-related jojoba acyl CoA reductase is also included.

InterPro entry IPR004262This family represents the C-terminal region of the male sterility protein in a number of organisms. The Arabidopsis thaliana male sterility 2 (MS2) protein is involved in male gametogenesis. The MS2 protein shows sequence similarity to a jojoba protein (also a member of this group) that converts wax fatty acids to fatty alcohols. It has been suggested that a possible function of the MS2 protein may be as a fatty acyl reductase in the formation of pollen wall substances [PUBMED:9351246].

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
