Domain present in fly proteins (CG14681, CG12492, CG6217), worm H06A10.1 and Arabidopsis thaliana MBG8.9.
SMART accession number:SM00686
Description: -
Interpro abstract (IPR019545):

The DM13 domain has been identified in animal proteins containing a DOMON domain likely to function as cytochromes involved in as yet unidentified redox reactions potentially related to protein hydroxylation or oxidative cross-linking. However, it is also found in bacteria. The DM13 domain contains a nearly absolutely conserved cysteine, which can be potentially involved in a redox reaction either as a nacked thiol group or by binding a prosthetic group like heme [ (PUBMED:17878204) ].

The DM13 domain is predicted to have a beta-strand-rich fold [ (PUBMED:17878204) ].
