UL97 Provide feedback
This family represents a conserved region within viral UL97 phosphotransferases. UL97 participates in the phosphorylation of the nucleoside analog ganciclovir (GCV) to produce GCV-monophosphate .

The gene product form the gene UL97 is a serine/threonine kinase. Although it can phosphorylates the antiviral drug ganciclovir [PUBMED:9217058], its biological function is the phosphorylation of its natural viral and cellular protein substrates which affect viral replication at many levels.
The kinase phosphorylates eukaryotic elongation factor 1delta, the carboxyl terminal domain of the large subunit of RNA polymerase II, the retinoblastoma tumour suppressor and lamins A and C performing a similar function to the cdc2/cyclin-dependent kinase 1. The activity of UL97 appear to stimulate the cell cycle to support viral DNA synthesis, enhance the expression of viral genes, promote virion morphogenesis and facilitate the egress of mature capsids from the nucleus [PUBMED:19434630].

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
