The growth factor receptor domain is a cysteine-rich region that is found in a variety of eukaryotic proteins that are involved in the mechanism of signal transduction by receptor tyrosine kinases. Proteins containing the growth factor receptor domain include the insulin-like growth factor-binding proteins (IGFBP) [PubMed11447105], the type-1 insulin-like growth-factor receptor (IGF-1R) [PubMed9690478], and the receptor protein-tyrosine kinase Erbb-3 (ErbB3) [PubMed12154198]. The general structure of the growth factor receptor domain is a disulphide-bound fold containing a beta-hairpin with two adjacent disulphides.

IGFBPs control the distribution, function and activity of insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) IGF-I and IGF-II, which are key regulators of cell proliferation, differentiation and transformation. All IGFBPs share a common domain organization, where the highest conservation is found in the N-terminal Cys-rich IGF-binding domain. The N-terminal domain contains 10-12 conserved cysteine residues.

IGF-1R is a member of the tyrosine-kinase receptor superfamily that is involved in both normal growth and development and malignant transformation. The Cys-rich domain is flanked by two L-domains, and together they contribute to hormone binding and ligand specificity, even though they do not bind ligand directly. The Cys-rich region is composed of eight disulphide-bonded modules, seven of which form a rod-shaped domain.

ErbB3 is a member of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) family of receptor tyrosine kinases. The extracellular region of ErbB3 is made up of two Cys-rich domains and two L-domains, arranged alternately. The two L-domains and the first Cys-rich domain are structurally homologous to those found in IGF-1R. The two Cys-rich domains are extended repeats of seven small disulphide-containing modules. A beta-hairpin loop extends from the first Cys-rich domain to contact the C-terminal portion of the second Cys-rich domain, creating a large pore structure.

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 16 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 Growth factor receptor 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 16 hidden Markov models representing the Growth factor receptor domain superfamily. Information on how the models are built, and plots showing hydrophobicity, match emmission probabilities and insertion/deletion probabilities can be inspected.
