Summary: Cytidine and deoxycytidylate deaminase zinc-binding region
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.
This tab holds the annotation information that is stored in the Pfam database. As we move to using Wikipedia as our main source of annotation, the contents of this tab will be gradually replaced by the Wikipedia tab.

This region contains the zinc-binding domain of cytidine and deoxycytidylate deaminase.
Cytidine deaminase (EC) (cytidine aminohydrolase) catalyzes the hydrolysis of cytidine into uridine and ammonia while deoxycytidylate deaminase (EC) (dCMP deaminase) hydrolyzes dCMP into dUMP. Both enzymes are known to bind zinc and to require it for their catalytic activity [PUBMED:1567863, PUBMED:8428902]. These two enzymes do not share any sequence similarity with the exception of a region that contains three conserved histidine and cysteine residues which are thought to be involved in the binding of the catalytic zinc ion.

This clan contains both free nucleotide and nucleic acid deaminases that act on adenosine, cytosine, guanine and cytidine, and are collectively known as the deaminase superfamily. The conserved fold consists of a three-layered alpha/beta/alpha structure with 3 helices and 4 strands in the 2134 order [1,2].This superfamily is further divided into two major divisions based on the presence of a helix (helix-4) that renders the terminal strands (strands 4 and 5) either parallel to each other in its presence, or anti-parallel in its absence . Structurally, the deaminase-like fold is present in four other superfamilies including the JAB-like metalloproteins, the C-terminal AICAR transformylase-catalyzing domains of PurH, Tm1506 and the formate dehydrogenase accessory subunit FdhD. The active site of the deaminases is composed of three residues that coordinate a zinc ion between conserved helices 2 and 3. The residues are typically found as [HCD]xE and CxxC motifs at the beginning of helices 2 and 3. The zinc ion activates a water molecule, which forms a tetrahderal intermediate with the carbon atom that is linked to the amine group. This is followed by deamination of the base.
The clan contains the following 17 members:A_deamin AICARFT_IMPCHas APOBEC_C APOBEC_N Bd3614-deam dCMP_cyt_deam_1 dCMP_cyt_deam_2 DYW_deaminase FdhD-NarQ LmjF365940-deam MafB19-deam OTT_1508_deam Pput2613-deam SCP1201-deam Toxin-deaminase XOO_2897-deam YwqJ-deaminase
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

You can use the tree controls to manipulate how the interactive tree is displayed:
- show/hide the summary boxes
- highlight species that are represented in the seed alignment
- expand/collapse the tree or expand it to a given depth
- select a sub-tree or a set of species within the tree and view them graphically or as an alignment
- save a plain text representation of the tree
There are 3 interactions for this family. More...
We determine these interactions using iPfam, which considers the interactions between residues in three-dimensional protein structures and maps those interactions back to Pfam families. You can find more information about the iPfam algorithm in the journal article that accompanies the website.
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 dCMP_cyt_deam_2 domain has been found. There are 12 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.
