CRISPR system Cmr subunit Cmr5 - Q8U1T0 (CMR5_PYRFU)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Number of PDB entries for Q8U1T0: 1
CRISPR (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat), is an adaptive immune system that provides protection against mobile genetic elements (viruses, transposable elements and conjugative plasmids). CRISPR clusters contain sequences complementary to antecedent mobile elements and target invading nucleic acids. CRISPR clusters are transcribed and processed into CRISPR RNA (crRNA), formerly called psiRNA (prokaryotic silencing) in this organism. Part of the Cmr ribonucleoprotein complex which has divalent cation-dependent endoribonuclease activity specific for ssRNA complementary to the crRNA, generating 5' hydroxy- and 3' phosphate or 2'-3' cyclic phosphate termini. It is not known which subunit has endoribonuclease activity. Cmr complex does not cleave ssDNA complementary to the crRNA. Cleavage of invading RNA is guided by the crRNA; substrate cleavage occurs a fixed distance (14 nt) from the 3' end of the crRNA. In vitro reconstitution shows Cmr1-2 and Cmr5 are not necessary for cleavage. (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 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 Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  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
