Function
Mediates influx of magnesium ions (PubMed:18276588, PubMed:22722933, PubMed:23781956, PubMed:23112165). Mediates Co(2+) uptake (PubMed:21454699, PubMed:23091000, PubMed:23425532). Has high selectivity for Co(2+) (PubMed:21454699, PubMed:23425532). Alternates between open and closed states. Activated by low cytoplasmic Mg(2+) levels. Inactive when cytoplasmic Mg(2+) levels are high (PubMed:23112165, PubMed:23425532, PubMed:26871634). (data source: UniProt  )
Subunit structure
Homopentamer (PubMed:22722933, PubMed:23781956, PubMed:16902408, PubMed:16598263, PubMed:16857941, PubMed:23112165, PubMed:23425532, PubMed:26871634). In the absence of Mg(2+), interactions between subunits are weakened, and dimers, trimers and tetramers can be observed in vitro (PubMed:22722933, PubMed:26871634). (data source: UniProt  )
Domain
The central ion permeation pathway is formed by the first transmembrane domain from each of the five subunits. Mg(2+) binding strengthens interactions between subunits and leads to the formation of a symmetrical homopentamer surrounding a closed ion permeation pathway (PubMed:23091000, PubMed:16902408, PubMed:16598263, PubMed:16857941, PubMed:23112165, PubMed:23425532, PubMed:26871634). Co(2+) binding also induces a conformation change (PubMed:21454699). Low Mg(2+) concentrations trigger both a conformation change within each subunit and a loosening of the interactions between subunits. This results in an open ion conduction pathway. In addition, this results in a less symmetrical shape of the whole complex (PubMed:23112165, PubMed:26871634). (data source: 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 Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  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
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
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.
