Interpro Scan result


This image shows the results of a InterProScan. The InterProScan search identifies sequence motifs from several databases.These results show that the target protein belongs to the RbsD/FucU superfamily (Purple and red lines) The gray line shows an possible binding histadine site.

PDB Sequence Match


This PDB scan compares structure alignment. The highest structural match with our sequence is shown to be involved in an d-ribose high affinity transport system. This supports the theory that our hypothetical protein is involved in the ABC transport system of ribose in prokaryote cells.

Residue Conservation Analysis


In this anaysis the residues are highlighted in different colours representing the levels of conservity. The red residues are the most conserved followed by pink, orange ect.
The yellow residue is highly conserved. acourding to certain literature it is very functionally important in the related ribose_fucu superfamily.

Fold Match


This anaysis compares the similiar folds between structures. This again shows that the same d-ribose high affinity transport from the previous PDB analysis has the highest similarity, thus again reinforces the close relationship of our protein with ribose transport systems in prokaryote bacteria. This suggests similar function.
