Family: DOMON (PF03351)

Summary: DOMON domain

Pfam includes annotations and additional family information from a range of different sources. These sources can be accessed via the tabs below.

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.

DOMON domain Provide feedback

The DOMON (named after dopamine beta-monooxygenase N-terminal) domain is 110-125 residues long. It is predicted to form an all beta fold with up to 11 strands and is secreted to the extracellular compartment. The beta-strand folding produces a hydrophobic pocket which appears to bind soluble haem. This is consistent with the predominant architectures where the protein is associated with cytochromes or enzymatic domains whose activity involves redox or electron transfer reactions potentially as a direct participant in the electron transfer process. The DOMON domain superfamily, of which this is just one member, shows (1) multiple hydrophobic residues that contribute to the hydrophobic core of the strands of the beta-sandwich, and small residues found at the boundaries of strands and loops, (2) a strongly conserved charged residue (usually arginine/lysine) at the end of strand 9, which possibly stabilises the loop between 9 and 10, and (3) a polar residue (usually histidine, lysine or arginine), that interacts or coordinates with ligands [1]. The suggested superfamily includes both haem- and sugar-binding members: the haem-binding families being the ethyl-Benzoate dehydrogenase family EB_dh, PF09459 the cellobiose dehydrogenase family CBDH and this family, and the sugar-binding families being the xylanases, CBM_4_9, PF02018. The common feature of the superfamily is the 11-beta-strand structure, although the first and eleventh strands are not well conserved either within families or between families.

The DOMON domain is an 110-125 residue long domain which has been identified in the physiologically important enzyme dopamine beta-monooxygenase and in several other secreted and transmembrane proteins from both plants and animals. It has been named after DOpamine beta-MOnooxygenase N-terminal domain. The DOMON domain can be found in one to four copies and in association with other domains, such as the Cu-ascorbate dependent monooxygenase domain, the epidermal growth factor domain, the trypsin inhibitor-like domain (TIL), the SEA domain and the Reelin domain. The architectures of the DOMON domain proteins strongly suggest a function in extracellular adhesion [PUBMED:11551777].

The sequence conservation is predominantly centred around patches of hydrophobic residues. The secondary structure prediction of the DOMON domain points to an all-beta-strand fold with seven or eight core strands supported by a buried core of conserved hydrophobic residues. There is a chraracteristic motif with two small positions (Gly or Ser) corresponding to a conserved turn immediately C-terminal to strand three. It has been proposed that the DOMON domain might form a beta-sandwich structure, with the strands distributed into two beta sheets as is seen in many extracellular adhesion domains such as the immunoglobulin, fibronectin type III, cadherin and PKD domains [PUBMED:11551777].

Alignments

We store a range of different sequence alignments for families. As well as the seed alignment from which the family is built, we provide the full alignment, generated by searching the sequence database using the family HMM. We also generate alignments using four representative proteomes (RP) sets, the NCBI sequence database, and our metagenomics sequence database. More...

View options

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family. You can see a description of each above. You can view these alignments in various ways but please note that some types of alignment are never generated while others may not be available for all families, most commonly because the alignments are too large to handle.

MyHits provides a collection of tools to handle multiple sequence alignments. For example, one can refine a seed alignment (sequence addition or removal, re-alignment or manual edition) and then search databases for remote homologs using HMMER3.

Trees

This page displays the phylogenetic tree for this family's seed alignment. We use FastTree to calculate neighbour join trees with a local bootstrap based on 100 resamples (shown next to the tree nodes). FastTree calculates approximately-maximum-likelihood phylogenetic trees from our seed alignment.

Note: You can also download the data file for the tree.
