Repressor protein cI - P03034 (RPC1_LAMBD)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for P03034: 9
Acts as a transcriptional repressor that allows virus to establish and maintain latency. Prevents both the viral DNA replication and the exit programs. Clamps the two operator OL (operator left made of OL1, OL2 and OL3 sites) and OR (operator right made of OR1, OR2 and OR3 sites) together by binding to them and arranging the intervening DNA in a loop. This step allows repression of lytic pR and pL promoters by binding to OL1, OL2, OR1 and OR2 simultaneously. The binding of cI on OR2 additionally activates the transcription of the cI gene thereby mediating an autoregulatory function to maintain the latent state. Once cI is present in sufficient amount, it can repress its own transcription by binding to OL3 and OR3. (data source: UniProt  )
Subunit structure
Homooctamer. The DNA loop is maintained by octamers of repressor cI. (data source: UniProt  )

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in red indicates combined ranges of Homology Models from SBKB   and the Protein Model Portal  
The PDB to UniProt mapping is based on the data provided by the EBI SIFTS project. See also Velankar et al., Nucleic Acids Research 33, D262-265 (2005).
