XRCC4pfam06632DNA double-strand break repair and V(D)J recombination protein XRCC4. This family consists of several eukaryotic DNA double-strand break repair and V(D)J recombination protein XRCC4 sequences. In the non-homologous end joining pathway of DNA double-strand break repair, the ligation step is catalyzed by a complex of XRCC4 and DNA ligase IV. It is thought that XRCC4 and ligase IV are essential for alignment-based gap filling, as well as for final ligation of the breaks.
P53pfam00870P53 DNA-binding domain. P53 is a tumor suppressor gene product; mutations in p53 or lack of expression are found associated with a large fraction of all human cancers. P53 is activated by DNA damage and acts as a regulator of gene expression that ultimatively blocks progression through the cell cycle. P53 binds to DNA as a tetrameric transcription factor. In its inactive form, p53 is bound to the ring finger protein Mdm2, which promotes its ubiquitinylation and subsequent proteosomal degradation. Phosphorylation of p53 disrupts the Mdm2-p53 complex, while the stable and active p53 binds to regulatory regions of its target genes, such as the cyclin-kinase inhibitor p21, which complexes and inactivates cdk2 and other cyclin complexes.
