Mammalian vasopressin-activated calcium-mobilizing receptor (VACM-1), a
kidney-specific protein thought to form a cell surface receptor  but
which does not have any structural hallmarks of a receptor.
Yeast CDC53 , which acts in concert with CDC4 and UBC3 (CDC34) to
control the G1-to-S phase transition.
Yeast hypothetical protein YGR003w.
Fission yeast hypothetical protein SpAC24H6.03.
The cullins are hydrophilic proteins of 740 to 815 amino acids. The C-terminal
extremity is the most conserved part of these proteins. We have developed a
signature pattern from that region.
This documentation entry is linked to both a signature pattern and a
profile. As the profile is much more sensitive than the pattern, you should
use it if you have access to the necessary software tools to do so.
