Clan: Gram-pos_anchor (CL0501)


Cell wall anchoring Add an annotation

This superfamily is characterised by families involved in the various mechanisms by which listerial proteins are attached at the bacterial surface and their many functions, including peptidoglycan metabolism, protein processing, adhesion to host cells, and invasion of host tissues.

This clan contains 3 families and the total number of domains in the clan is 13906. The clan was built by P Coggill.

For those sequences which have a structure in the Protein DataBank, we use the mapping between UniProt, PDB and Pfam coordinate systems from the MSD group, to allow us to map Pfam domains onto UniProt three-dimensional structures. The table below shows the mapping between the Pfam families in this clan, the corresponding UniProt entries, and the region of the three-dimensional structures that are available for that sequence.
