  Domain Name: PLAT_polycystin
PLAT/LH2 domain of polycystin-1 like proteins. Polycystins are a large family of membrane proteins composed of multiple domains, present in fish, invertebrates, mammals, and humans that are widely expressed in various cell types and whose biological functions remain poorly defined. In human, mutations in polycystin-1 (PKD1) and polycystin-2 (PKD2) have been shown to be the cause for autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). The generally proposed function of PLAT/LH2 domains is to mediate interaction with lipids or membrane bound proteins.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.

Total Mutations Found: 21
Total Disease Mutations Found: 15
This domain occurred 10 times on human genes (19 proteins).


 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.
