Summary: Complement Clr-like EGF-like
Complement Clr-like EGF-like Provide feedback
cEGF, or complement Clr-like EGF, domains have six conserved cysteine residues disulfide-bonded into the characteristic pattern 'ababcc'. They are found in blood coagulation proteins such as fibrillin, Clr and Cls, thrombomodulin, and the LDL receptor. The core fold of the EGF domain consists of two small beta-hairpins packed against each other. Two major structural variants have been identified based on the structural context of the C-terminal cysteine residue of disulfide 'c' in the C-terminal hairpin: hEGFs and cEGFs. In cEGFs the C-terminal thiol resides on the C-terminal beta-sheet, resulting in long loop-lengths between the cysteine residues of disulfide 'c', typically C[10+]XC. These longer loop-lengths may have arisen by selective cysteine loss from a four-disulfide EGF template such as laminin or integrin. Tandem cEGF domains have five linking residues between terminal cysteines of adjacent domains. cEGF domains may or may not bind calcium in the linker region. cEGF domains with the consensus motif CXN4X[F,Y]XCXC are hydroxylated exclusively on the asparagine residue.

Members of this clan all belong to the EGF superfamily. This particular superfamily is characterised as having least 6 cysteines residues. These cysteine form disulphide bonds, in the order 1-3, 2-4, 5-6, which are essential for the stability of the EGF fold. These disulphide bonds are stacked in a ladder-like arrangement. The Laminin EGF family is distinguished by having an an additional disulphide bond. The function of the domains within this family remains unclear, but they are though to largely perform a structural role. More often than not, there domains are arranged a tandem repeats in extracellular proteins.
The clan contains the following 13 members:cEGF DSL EGF EGF_2 EGF_3 EGF_alliinase EGF_CA EGF_MSP1_1 FOLN FXa_inhibition hEGF Laminin_EGF Tme5_EGF_like
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
