  Domain Name: Death_UNC5-like
Death domain found in Uncoordinated-5 homolog family. Death Domain (DD) found in Uncoordinated-5 (UNC-5) homolog family, which includes Unc5A, B, C and D in vertebrates. UNC5 proteins are receptors for secreted netrins (netrin-1, -3 and -4) that are involved in diverse processes like axonal guidance, neuronal migration, blood vessel patterning, and apoptosis. They are transmembrane proteins with an extracellular domain consisting of two immunoglobulin repeats, two thrombospondin type-I modules and an intracellular region containing a ZU-5 domain, UPA domain and a DD. In general, DDs are protein-protein interaction domains found in a variety of domain architectures. Their common feature is that they form homodimers by self-association or heterodimers by associating with other members of the DD superfamily including CARD (Caspase activation and recruitment domain), DED (Death Effector Domain), and PYRIN. They serve as adaptors in signaling pathways and can recruit other proteins into signaling complexes.
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.
