  Domain Name: MBD
MeCP2, MBD1, MBD2, MBD3, MBD4, CLLD8-like, and BAZ2A-like proteins constitute a family of proteins that share the methyl-CpG-binding domain (MBD). The MBD consists of about 70 residues and is defined as the minimal region required for binding to methylated DNA by a methyl-CpG-binding protein which binds specifically to methylated DNA. The MBD can recognize a single symmetrically methylated CpG either as naked DNA or within chromatin. MeCP2, MBD1 and MBD2 (and likely MBD3) form complexes with histone deacetylase and are involved in histone deacetylase-dependent repression of transcription. MBD4 is an endonuclease that forms a complex with the DNA mismatch-repair protein MLH1. The MBDs present in putative chromatin remodelling subunit, BAZ2A, and putative histone methyltransferase, CLLD8, represent two phylogenetically distinct groups within the MBD protein family.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.

Tips:
 If you've navigated here from a protein, hovering over a position on the weblogo will display the corresponding protein position for that domain position.

 The histograms below the weblogo indicate mutations found on the domain. Red is for disease (OMIM) and blue is for SNPs.

 Functional Features are displayed as orange boxes under the histograms. You can choose which features are displayed in the box below.
