  Domain Name: PDI_a_ERp38
PDIa family, endoplasmic reticulum protein 38 (ERp38) subfamily; composed of proteins similar to the P5-like protein first isolated from alfalfa, which contains two redox active TRX (a) domains at the N-terminus, like human P5, and a C-terminal domain with homology to the C-terminal domain of ERp29, unlike human P5. The cDNA clone of this protein (named G1) was isolated from an alfalfa cDNA library by screening with human protein disulfide isomerase (PDI) cDNA. The G1 protein is constitutively expressed in all major organs of the plant and its expression is induced by treatment with tunicamycin, indicating that it may be a glucose-regulated protein. The G1 homolog in the eukaryotic social amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum is also described as a P5-like protein, which is located in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) despite the absence of an ER-retrieval signal. G1 homologs from Aspergillus niger and Neurospora crassa have also been characterized, and are named TIGA and ERp38, respectively. Also included in the alignment is an atypical PDI from Leishmania donovani containing a single a domain, and the C-terminal a domain of a P5-like protein from Entamoeba histolytica.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
