RPELRepeat in Drosophila CG10860, human KIAA0680 and C. elegans F26H9.2
|SMART accession number:||SM00707|
|Interpro abstract (IPR004018):|
RPEL repeat (RPxxxEL) containing proteins are found in a wide range of metazoan organisms. RPEL repeats have been shown to be required for unpolymerised actin binding and proteins containing RPEL repeats are able to modify cell shape and/or are important in the regulation of gene expression by the actin cytoskeleton. RPEL repeats can be found in association with the SAP motif, which could be involved in DNA binding [(PUBMED:12732141), (PUBMED:15620697)].
Some proteins known to contain RPEL repeats are listed below:
