Protein toll - P08953 (TOLL_DROME)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for P08953: 5
Receptor for the cleaved activated form of spz, spaetzle C-106 (PubMed:12872120). Binding to spaetzle C-106 activates the Toll signaling pathway and induces expression of the antifungal peptide drosomycin (PubMed:12872120, PubMed:8808632). Component of the extracellular signaling pathway that establishes dorsal-ventral polarity in the embryo (PubMed:3931919). Promotes heterophilic cellular adhesion (PubMed:2124970). (data source: UniProt  )
Subunit structure
In the absence of ligand, forms a low-affinity disulfide-linked homodimer (PubMed:24733933). In the presence of ligand, crystal structures show one Tl molecule bound to a spaetzle C-106 homodimer (PubMed:24282309, PubMed:24733933). However, the active complex probably consists of two Tl molecules bound to a spaetzle C-106 homodimer (PubMed:24282309, PubMed:24733933). This is supported by in vitro experiments which also show binding of the spaetzle C-106 dimer to 2 Tl receptors (PubMed:12872120). Ligand binding induces conformational changes in the extracellular domain of Tl (PubMed:24282309). This may enable a secondary homodimerization interface at the C-terminus of the Tl extracellular domain (PubMed:24282309). (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 Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  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).
