SUMMARY In this study, we describe a novel domain, OCRE, which is shared by the recently identified angiogenic factor VG5Q and a specific family of RNA-binding motif proteins. The OCRE domain is characterized by a 5-fold, imperfectly repeated octameric sequence, which includes a triplet of often-conserved aromatic amino acids predicted to form a beta-strand(More)
UNLABELLED Voro3D is an original easy-to-use tool, which provides a brand new point of view on protein structures through the three-dimensional (3D) Voronoi tessellations. To construct the Voronoi cells associated with each amino acid by a number of different tessellation methods, Voro3D uses a protein structure file in the PDB format as an input. After(More)
We describe here LOTUS, a hitherto uncharacterized small globular domain, which was identified using sensitive sequence profile analysis. The LOTUS domain is found in germline-specific proteins that are present in the nuage/polar granules of germ cells. TDRD5 and TDRD7, two mammalian members of the germline Tudor group, possess three copies of the LOTUS(More)
CHS1/LYST, the causative protein of the Chediak-Higashi syndrome (CHS), belongs to the BEACH (named after BEige And Chediak-Higashi) family, which includes various large proteins sharing the same C-terminal domain architecture [a PH (Pleckstrin homology)-BEACH domain followed by WD repeats). Members of the BEACH family are generally defined as(More)
Zona Pellucida (ZP) domains have been found in a wide variety of extracellular proteins, in which they play essential role for polymerization. They are shared by the ZP proteins, which constitute the extracellular coat of animal eggs. Except from ZP3, constituting the primary sperm receptor, the ZP proteins possess, in addition to their C-terminal ZP(More)
