Meiosis-specific protein MEI4 is required for meiotic induction of recombination, viable spore production and chromosome synapsis. It is a component of the MER2-MEI4-REC114 complex which seems to be required for meiotic double-strand break (DSB) formation [PUBMED:16783010, PUBMED:20551173]. In Schizosaccharomyces pombe it is known as Rec24 [PUBMED:16303567, PUBMED:21429938].

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
