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: Aminopeptidase N, middle-beta domain

Aminopeptidase N is a well conserved enzyme in a variety of species such as mammals, insects, plants, and bacteria. Together with certain endopeptidases, aminopeptidase N plays a major role in peptide degradation, which enables the utilization of amino acids as nutrients. The enzyme is composed of four domains: an N-terminal beta-domain, a catalytic domain, a middle beta-domain, and a C-terminal alpha-domain PMID:16885166. This entry represents the middle-beta domain which exhibits an Ig-like fold. Its function remains unclear.
