Summary: CLASP N 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.
CLASP N terminal Provide feedback
This region is found at the N terminal of CLIP-associated proteins (CLASPs). CLASPs are widely conserved microtubule plus-end-tracking proteins that regulate the stability of dynamic microtubules . In yeast, Drosophila, and Xenopus, a single CLASP orthologue is present. In mammals, a second paralogue (CLASP2) exists which has some functional overlap with CLASP1 .

InterPro entry IPR024395This domain is found in the N-terminal region of CLIP-associated proteins (CLASPs), which are widely conserved microtubule plus-end-tracking proteins that regulate the stability of dynamic microtubules [PUBMED:16951255, PUBMED:16914514]. The domain is also found in other proteins involved in microtubule binding, including STU1, MOR1 and spindle pole body component Alp14.

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

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 CLASP_N domain has been found. There are 1 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.
