Summary: E2 (early) protein, C terminal
The Pfam group coordinates the annotation of Pfam families in Wikipedia, but we have not yet assigned a Wikipedia article to this family. If you think that a particular Wikipedia article provides good annotation, please let us know.
This tab holds the annotation information that is stored in the Pfam database. As we move to using Wikipedia as our main source of annotation, the contents of this tab will be gradually replaced by the Wikipedia tab.

E2 is an early regulatory protein found in the dsDNA papillomaviruses. The viral genome is a 7.9-kb circular DNA that codes for at least eight early and two late (capsid) proteins. The products of the early genes E6 and E7 are oncoproteins that destabilise the cellular tumour suppressors p53 and pRB. The product of the E1 gene is a helicase necessary for viral DNA replication. The products of the E2 gene play key roles in the regulation of viral gene transcription and DNA replication. During early stages of viral infection, the E2 protein represses the transcription of the oncogenes E6 and E7, reintroduction of E2 into cervical cancer cell-lines leads to repression of E6/E7 transcription, stabilisation of the tumour suppressor p53, and cell-cycle arrest at the G1 phase of the cell cycle. E2 can also induce apoptosis by a p53-independent mechanism.
E2 proteins from all papillomavirus strains bind a consensus palindromic sequence ACCgNNNNcGGT present in multiple copies in the regulatory region. It can either activate or repress transcription, depending on E2RE's position with regard to proximal promoter elements. Repression occurs by sterically hindering the assembly of the transcription initiation complex. The E2 protein is composed of a C-terminal DNA-binding domain and an N-terminal trans-activation domain. E2 exists in solution and binds to DNA as a dimer The E2-DNA binding domain forms a dimeric beta-barrel, with each subunit contributing an anti-parallel 4-stranded beta-sheet "half-barrel" [PUBMED:1328886, PUBMED:11988474]. The topology of each subunit is beta1-1-beta2-beta3-2-beta4. Helix 1 is the recognition helix housing all of the amino acid residues involved in direct DNA sequence specification. Upon dimerisation, strands beta2 and beta4 at the edges of each subunit participate in a continuous hydrogen-bonding network, which results in an 8-stranded beta-barrel. The dimer interface is extensive, made up of hydrogen bonds between subunits and a substantial hydrophobic beta-barrel core.

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request

There is 1 interaction for this family. More...
We determine these interactions using iPfam, which considers the interactions between residues in three-dimensional protein structures and maps those interactions back to Pfam families. You can find more information about the iPfam algorithm in the journal article that accompanies the website.
For those sequences which have a structure in the Protein DataBank, we use the mapping between UniProt, PDB and Pfam coordinate systems from the PDBe group, to allow us to map Pfam domains onto UniProt sequences and three-dimensional protein structures. The table below shows the structures on which the PPV_E2_C domain has been found. There are 38 instances of this domain found in the PDB. Note that there may be multiple copies of the domain in a single PDB structure, since many structures contain multiple copies of the same protein seqence.
