  Domain Name: VHS_ENTH_ANTH
VHS, ENTH and ANTH domain superfamily; composed of proteins containing a VHS, ENTH or ANTH domain. The VHS domain is present in Vps27 (Vacuolar Protein Sorting), Hrs (Hepatocyte growth factor-regulated tyrosine kinase substrate) and STAM (Signal Transducing Adaptor Molecule). It is located at the N-termini of proteins involved in intracellular membrane trafficking. The epsin N-terminal homology (ENTH) domain is an evolutionarily conserved protein module found primarily in proteins that participate in clathrin-mediated endocytosis. A set of proteins previously designated as harboring an ENTH domain in fact contains a highly similar, yet unique module referred to as an AP180 N-terminal homology (ANTH) domain. VHS, ENTH and ANTH domains are structurally similar and are composed of a superhelix of eight alpha helices. ENTH adnd ANTH (E/ANTH) domains bind both inositol phospholipids and proteins and contribute to the nucleation and formation of clathrin coats on membranes. ENTH domains also function in the development of membrane curvature through lipid remodeling during the formation of clathrin-coated vesicles. E/ANTH domain-bearing proteins have recently been shown to function with adaptor protein-1 and GGA adaptors at the trans-Golgi network, which suggests that E/ANTH domains are universal components of the machinery for clathrin-mediated membrane budding.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
