Backbone resonance assignments of the monomeric DUF59 domain of human Fam96a
MetadataShow full item record
Proteins containing a domain of unknown function 59 (DUF59) appear to have a variety of physiological functions, ranging from iron-sulfur cluster assembly to DNA repair. DUF59 proteins have been found in bacteria, archaea and eukaryotes, however Fam96a and Fam96b are the only mammalian proteins predicted to contain a DUF59 domain. Fam96a is an 18 kDa protein comprised primarily of a DUF59 domain (residues 31–157) and an N-terminal signal peptide (residues 1–27). Interestingly, the DUF59 domain of Fam96a exists as monomeric and dimeric forms in solution, and X-ray crystallography studies of both forms unexpectedly revealed two different domain-swapped dimer structures. Here we report the backbone resonance assignments and secondary structure of the monomeric form of the 127 residue DUF59 domain of human Fam96a. This study provides the basis for further understanding the structural variability exhibited by Fam96a and the mechanism for domain swapping.
