  Domain Name: CDC_Septin
CDC/Septin GTPase family. Septins are a conserved family of GTP-binding proteins associated with diverse processes in dividing and non-dividing cells. They were first discovered in the budding yeast S. cerevisiae as a set of genes (CDC3, CDC10, CDC11 and CDC12) required for normal bud morphology. Septins are also present in metazoan cells, where they are required for cytokinesis in some systems, and implicated in a variety of other processes involving organization of the cell cortex and exocytosis. In humans, 12 septin genes generate dozens of polypeptides, many of which comprise heterooligomeric complexes. Since septin mutants are commonly defective in cytokinesis and formation of the neck formation of the neck filaments/septin rings, septins have been considered to be the primary constituents of the neck filaments. Septins belong to the GTPase superfamily for their conserved GTPase motifs and enzymatic activities.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
