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: RuvBL1 DNA/RNA binding domain

RuvBL1 is a ubiquitously expressed protein that plays important roles in chromatin remodeling, transcription, DNA repair, and apoptosis. The significant evolutionary conservation of RuvBL1 from yeast to man strongly suggests that it mediates important cellular functions. RuvBL1 belongs to a large family of ATPases known as AAA+ proteins (ATPases associated with diverse cellular activities) which generally form hexamers. RuvBL1 is the eukaryotic homologue of the bacterial DNA-dependent ATPase and helicase RuvB.

This entry represents the second domain of RuvBL1 which is involved in DNA/RNA binding PMID:17060327.
