This entry represents the N-terminal RNA polymerase-binding domain of bacterial transcription factors such as NusA (N-utilising substance A). NusA is involved in transcriptional pausing, termination and anti-termination. NusA from Thermotoga maritima contains an N-terminal domain and three RNA-binding domains (one S1 domain and two KH domains). The N-terminal domain consists of a bifurcated coiled beta-sheet within an alpha/beta(3)/alpha/beta/alpha fold, which can be divided into two subdomains: a globular head and a helical body. The globular head subdomain may interact with RNA polymerase, while the helical body displays a similar structure to that of the helical domain in sigma70 [PubMed14621988].

Browse genome assignments for this superfamily. The SUPERFAMILY hidden Markov model library has been used to carry out SCOP domain assignments to all genomes at the superfamily level.

Alignments of sequences to 2 models in this superfamily are available by clicking on the 'Alignments' icon above. PDB sequences less than 40% identical are shown by default, but any other sequence(s) may be aligned. Select PDB sequences, genome sequences, or paste in or upload your own sequences.

Browse and view proteins in genomes which have different domain combinations including a Transcription factor NusA, N-terminal domain domain.

Examine the distribution of domain superfamilies, or families, across the major taxonomic kingdoms or genomes within a kingdom. This gives an immediate impression of how superfamilies, or families, are restricted to certain kingdoms of life.

Explore domain occurrence network where nodes represent genomes and edges are domain architectures (shared between genomes) containing the superfamily of interest.

There are 2 hidden Markov models representing the Transcription factor NusA, N-terminal domain superfamily. Information on how the models are built, and plots showing hydrophobicity, match emmission probabilities and insertion/deletion probabilities can be inspected.
