Phage integrases are enzymes that mediate unidirectional site-specific recombination between two DNA recognition sequences, the phage attachment site, attP, and the bacterial attachment site, attB [PubMed14687564]. Integrases may be grouped into two major families, the tyrosine recombinases and the serine recombinases, based on their mode of catalysis. Tyrosine family integrases, such as lambda integrase, utilise a catalytic tyrosine to mediate strand cleavage, tend to recognize longer attP sequences, and require other proteins encoded by the phage or the host bacteria.

The 356 amino acid lambda integrase consists of two domains: an N-terminal domain (NTD) that includes residues 1 - 64 and is responsible for binding the arm-type sites of attP, and a C-terminal domain that binds the lower affinity core-type sites and contains the catalytic site. The NTD adopts a 4-5 helical bundle fold with two orthogonally packed alpha-hairpins.

The recombinases Cre from P1 phage, XerD from Escherichia coli, and Flp from yeast are members of the tyrosine recombinase family, and have a two-domain motif resembling that of lambda integrase, as well as sharing a conserved binding mechanism [PubMed12560475, PubMed16139195].

The phage integrase NTD is almost always found with the signature that defines the phage integrase family (see )

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 3 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 lambda integrase-like, N-terminal 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 3 hidden Markov models representing the lambda integrase-like, N-terminal domain superfamily. Information on how the models are built, and plots showing hydrophobicity, match emmission probabilities and insertion/deletion probabilities can be inspected.
