    Protein Summary

    This protein is annotated as a TetR family transcriptional regulator and a member of Pfam PF00440.

    Pfam update: I have built a family that avoids overlapping with the N-terminal TetR_N families. However, the sequences don't match our other TetR_C families although several members fall into families which are shown in InterPro to match G3DSA:1.10.357.10 TetR_C. There is a highly conserved Tryptophan at the very end of the model, otherwise there is not brilliant conservation. The alignment for the new family TetR_C_8, PF14278 can be seen at: https://pfamsvn.sanger.ac.uk/svn/pfam/trunk/Data/Families/PF14278

    It is present as a monomer in the asymmetric unit of the unit cell in the crystal structure. Sulfate (SO4, stick figure) from the crystallization solution has been modeled in the solvent structure. In addition, an Unidentified Ligand (UNL, red spheres) has been modeled at a putative functional site:


    Crystal packing analysis with PISA suggests that a dimer should be the significant oligomeric form in solution:


    The UNL (red spheres) has been modeled in this structure (cyan) based on comparison with the homolog structure with PDB id 3G1L (Ref1, yellow and blue):



    The sequence id between this target and the 3G1L is ~11% only but they are similar in structure. The 3G1L comes up as the 9th hit in FFAS (link above). All the other higher FFAS hits have < 20% seq id to this target. 

    However, the active site of 3G1L is more hydrophobic (comprised mainly of PHE and TRP residues, blue sticks) than for this target (two TYR residues, 1 HIS and 1 TRP, red sticks):
