Ankyrin repeat domain-containing protein 2A - Q9SAR5 (AKR2A_ARATH)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for Q9SAR5: 2
Exhibits chaperone activity toward chloroplast outer envelope membrane, mitochondrion outer membrane, endoplasmic reticulum membrane and peroxisomal proteins, by recruiting specific proteins containing a single transmembrane associated with an AKR2A-binding sequence (ABS) and subsequently binding glycolipids (e.g. monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG) and phosphatidylglycerol (PG)) present in the membrane of the target organelle (PubMed:18193034, PubMed:20215589, PubMed:25203210). Seems to be involved in the regulation of hydrogen peroxide levels during biotic and abiotic stresses by optimizing the ascorbate peroxidase 3 (APX3) hydrogen peroxide-degrading activity. This regulation might be monitored by GRF6. Cytosolic targeting factor for chloroplast outer membrane (COM) proteins that mediates sorting and targeting of nascent chloroplast outer envelope membrane (OEM) proteins to the chloroplast. Facilitates the targeting of OEP7 to chloroplasts (PubMed:18193034). Facilitates the targeting of APX3 to peroxisomes. Involved in cellular metabolism (e.g. peroxisome activity) and required for plant growth and development (PubMed:20215589). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Interacts with TOM20-4, CYTB5-E, CBR1, APX3, APX5, TOC34 and GRF6. Binds to chloroplast outer envelope membrane (OEM) protein targeting signals, as well as to chloroplasts. Interacts with OEP7 (PubMed:18193034). Binds to HSP17.8 via its ankyrin repeats, this interaction enhances chaperone activity and chloroplast binding. Interacts also with HSP17.4A, HSP17.6A and HSP18.1 (PubMed:21730198). Binds specifically to two chloroplast glycolipids, monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG) and phosphatidylglycerol (PG) (PubMed:25203210). UniProt
The ankyrin repeats (ANK) mediate interactions with hexoses-containing lipids present in organellar membranes (e.g. chloroplast), such as monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG) and phosphatidylglycerol (PG). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
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

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
