Integration host factor (IHF) is a small heterodimeric protein that binds the minor groove of DNA in a sequence-specific manner and induces a large bend. This bending stabilises distinct DNA conformations that are required during several bacterial processes, such as recombination, transposition, replication and transcription . The core structure of IHF consists of a partly opened 4-helical bundle that is capped with a beta-sheet.
Prokaryotic protein HU and the bacteriophage SPO1 transcription factor TF1 are closely related to IHF. These proteins are collectively referred to as type II DNA-binding proteins (DBPII), forming a group of basic, dimeric proteins found in all bacteria that are able to bind DNA to induce and stabilise DNA bending. HU plays a structural role in replication initiation, transcription regulation, site-specific recombination, and the compaction of the bacterial genome . TF1 is essential for viral multiplication .
The DNA-binding domain of the TraM protein , an essential component of the DNA transfer machinery of the conjugative resistance plasmid R1, appears to have a similar structure to DBPII .

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 20 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 IHF-like DNA-binding proteins 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 20 hidden Markov models representing the IHF-like DNA-binding proteins superfamily. Information on how the models are built, and plots showing hydrophobicity, match emmission probabilities and insertion/deletion probabilities can be inspected.
