Yeast FCP1 is an essential protein serine phosphatase (EC 184.108.40.206) that
dephosphorylates the C-terminal domain (CTD) of RNA polymerase II. FCP1
orthologs are present in all known eukaryote proteomes. The N-terminal domain
of FCP1 corresponds to the catalytic unit of the phosphatase and has been
refered to as the FCP1 homology domain. The FCP1 homology domain, which is a
~180-residue module, is also found in many other proteins of unknown function.
It contains a DxDx(T/V) motif preceded by four hydrophobic residues
characteristic of a large family of metal-dependent phosphohydrolases and
phosphotransferases. The first aspartate residue is likely to participate
in catalysis, whereas the second could have a role in substrate recognition
The profile we developed covers the entire FCP1 homology domain.
