PROSITE documentation PDOC00872 [for PROSITE entry PS01133]

Uncharacterized protein family UPF0017 signature


The following uncharacterized proteins have been shown [1] to share regions of similarities:

  • Yeast chromosome II hypothetical protein YBR177c.
  • Yeast chromosome XIII hypothetical protein YMR210w.
  • Yeast chromosome XVI hypothetical protein YPL095c.
  • Escherichia coli hypothetical protein yheT.
  • Human protein pHPS1-2.
  • Drosophila protein anon-23D.
  • Picea glauca (white spruce) late embryogenesis abundant protein EMB8.
  • Caenorhabditis elegans hypothetical protein C44C1.5.

These are proteins of about 38 to 51 Kd whose central region contains a number of conserved regions. We chose one of these regions as a signature pattern.
