PROSITE documentation PDOC00951 [for PROSITE entry PS01237]

Uncharacterized protein family UPF0028 signature


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

  • Yeast chromosome XIII hypothetical protein YMR059c (1679 aa).
  • Caenorhabditis elegans hypothetical protein ZK370.4 (1351 aa).
  • Caenorhabditis elegans hypothetical protein M110.7 (880 aa).
  • Escherichia coli hypothetical protein ychK (314 aa).
  • Mycobacterium tuberculosis hypothetical protein MtCY9C4.03c (583 aa)

These are proteins of variable size which share a domain of about 200 residues. This domain is located at the C-terminal of the eukaryotic members of this family. It can be picked up the database by the following glycine-rich pattern.
