Abstract

Villin is an F-actin bundling protein involved in the maintenance of the microvilli of the absorptive epithelia. The villin-type "headpiece" domain is a modular motif found at the extreme C-terminus of larger "core" domains in over 25 cytoskeletal proteins in plants and animals, often in assocation with the Gelsolin repeat. Although the headpiece is classified as an F-actin-binding domain, it has been shown that not all headpiece domains are intrinsically F-actin-binding motifs, surface charge distribution may be an important element for F-actin recognition [PubMed11977079]. An autonomously folding, 35 residue, thermostable subdomain (HP36) of the full-length 76 amino acid residue villin headpiece, is the smallest known example of a cooperatively folded domain of a naturally occurring protein. The structure of HP36, as determined by NMR spectroscopy, consists of three short helices surrounding a tightly packed hydrophobic core [PubMed12095260].

Browse genome assignments for this superfamily. The SUPERFAMILY hidden Markov model library has been used to carry out SCOP domain assignments to all genomes at the superfamily level.


Alignments of sequences to 8 models in this superfamily are available by clicking on the 'Alignments' icon above. PDB sequences less than 40% identical are shown by default, but any other sequence(s) may be aligned. Select PDB sequences, genome sequences, or paste in or upload your own sequences.


Browse and view proteins in genomes which have different domain combinations including a VHP, Villin headpiece domain domain.


Examine the distribution of domain superfamilies, or families, across the major taxonomic kingdoms or genomes within a kingdom. This gives an immediate impression of how superfamilies, or families, are restricted to certain kingdoms of life.


Explore domain occurrence network where nodes represent genomes and edges are domain architectures (shared between genomes) containing the superfamily of interest.

There are 8 hidden Markov models representing the VHP, Villin headpiece domain superfamily. Information on how the models are built, and plots showing hydrophobicity, match emmission probabilities and insertion/deletion probabilities can be inspected.
