  Domain Name: PA_1
PA_1: Protease-associated (PA) domain subgroup 1. A subgroup of PA-domain containing proteins. Proteins in this subgroup contain a RING-finger (Really Interesting New Gene) domain C-terminal to this PA domain. The PA domain is an insert domain in a diverse fraction of proteases. The significance of the PA domain to many of the proteins in which it is inserted is undetermined. It may be a protein-protein interaction domain. At peptidase active sites, the PA domain may participate in substrate binding and/or promoting conformational changes, which influence the stability and accessibility of the site to substrate. Proteins in this group contain a C-terminal RING-finger domain. Proteins into which the PA domain is inserted include the following: i) various signal peptide peptidases: such as hSPPL2a and 2b, ii) various E3 ubiquitin ligases similar to human GRAIL (gene related to anergy in lymphocytes) protein, iii) various proteins containing a RING finger motif such as Arabidopsis ReMembR-H2 protein, iv) EDEM3 (ER-degradation-enhancing mannosidase-like 3 protein), v) various plant vacuolar sorting receptors such as Pisum sativum BP-80, vi) prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), vii) yeast aminopeptidase Y viii) Vibrio metschnikovii VapT, a sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) resistant extracellular alkaline serine protease, ix) various subtilisin-like proteases such as Cucumisin from the juice of melon fruits, and x) human TfR (transferrin receptor) 1 and human TfR2. The proteins listed above belong to other subgroups; relatively little is known about proteins in this subgroup.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.

 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.
