The name of this superfamily has been modified since the most recent official CATH+ release (v4_3_0). At the point of the last release, this superfamily was named:

Ska1 microtubule binding domain-like

Functional Families

Overview of the Structural Clusters (SC) and Functional Families within this CATH Superfamily. Clusters with a representative structure are represented by a filled circle.

Superfamily: Ska1 microtubule binding domain-like

The name has been chosen based the functional information for this superfamily provided by UniProt-SwissProt which is backed by the available structural information.

According to the literature, this structural domain corresponds to the microtubule binding domain (MBD) in Ska1, spindle and kinetochore associated protein 1 ( With this structural domain being referred to as Ska1-MBD consistently throughout different published papers it therefore shows to be appropriate to identify this superfamily.
