  Domain Name: PX_SNARE
The phosphoinositide binding Phox Homology domain of SNARE proteins from fungi. The PX domain is a phosphoinositide (PI) binding module present in many proteins with diverse functions such as cell signaling, vesicular trafficking, protein sorting, and lipid modification, among others. This subfamily is composed of fungal proteins similar to Saccharomyces cerevisiae Vam7p. They contain an N-terminal PX domain and a C-terminal SNARE domain. The SNARE (Soluble NSF attachment protein receptor) family of proteins are integral membrane proteins that serve as key factors for vesicular trafficking. Vam7p is anchored at the vacuolar membrane through the specific interaction of its PX domain with phosphatidylinositol-3-phosphate (PI3P) present in bilayers. It plays an essential role in vacuole fusion. The PX domain is involved in targeting of proteins to PI-enriched membranes, and may also be involved in protein-protein interaction.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
