  Domain Name: BLMA_like
Bleomycin binding protein (BLMA) and similar proteins; BLMA confers bleomycin (Bm) resistance by directly binding to Bm. BLMA also called Bleomycin resistance protein, confers Bm resistance by directly binding to Bm. Bm is a glycopeptide antibiotic produced naturally by actinomycetes. It is a potent anti-cancer drug, which acts as a strong DNA-cutting agent, thereby causing cell death. BLMA is produced by actinomycetes to protect themselves against their own lethal compound. BLMA has two identically-folded subdomains, with the same alpha/beta fold; these two halves have no sequence similarity. BLMAs are dimers and each dimer binds to two Bm molecules at the Bm-binding pockets formed at the dimer interface; two Bm molecules are bound per dimer. BLMA belongs to a conserved domain superfamily that is found in a variety of structurally related metalloproteins, including the bleomycin resistance protein, glyoxalase I, and type I ring-cleaving dioxygenases. As for the larger superfamily, this family contains members with or without domain swapping.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
