This entry represents hypothetical proteins such as HI1450 (DUF440), which is believed to act as a putative dsDNA mimic. HI1450 is an acidic protein with a core structure consisting of alpha(2)-beta(4), where the alpha-helices are packed against the side of an anti-parallel 4-stranded beta meander. As such, it has some similarity to the dsDNA mimics uracil-DNA glycosylase inhibitor and nuclease A inhibitor (NuiA), including the distribution of surface charges and the position of the hydrophobic cavity [PubMed14747986]. DNA mimics act to inhibit or regulate dsDNA-binding proteins.

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 1 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 Putative dsDNA mimic 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 1 hidden Markov models representing the Putative dsDNA mimic superfamily. Information on how the models are built, and plots showing hydrophobicity, match emmission probabilities and insertion/deletion probabilities can be inspected.
